MP congratulates steelworks heritage project following award success

Clwyd South MP, Susan Elan Jones, called in on the trustees of the Brymbo Heritage Project to congratulate them on their success at the Prince’s Regeneration Trust awards ceremony for Building, Regeneration, Informing, Community, and Knowledge (BRICK).

Brymbo Heritage picked up BRICK awards in both the Governance and Champion categories, beating 450 other organisations from across the UK in an event that some have described as the Oscars of the heritage world.

The project’s enormous potential was also recognised earlier in the year by the Big Lottery Fund Wales, who awarded the steelworks site £5.4M.

Following the visit, Susan Elan Jones MP said: “I am absolutely delighted that Brymbo Heritage has been recognised with these important, nationwide awards. It is thoroughly deserved, the trustees and volunteers work very hard at developing and promoting the site. I am really looking forward to seeing their amazing plans for this world-class heritage site come to fruition”.
