Go and See Grant

We are now in receipt of the Go and See grant, which is part of the Welsh Government Art Council, this funding will allows us to access artistic events that would normally be restricted to us due to the financial costs. As part of the funding we will be taking a group of pupils to Cardiff in March, to experience the culture that the capital has to offer, visiting the Welsh Assembly and then to St Fagan’s to see a variety of buildings which have been moved to the museum from all around Wales.

Other events planned from the grant are to the Greenfield Heritage Centre, Corris Craft Centre, Ruthin Craft Centre and Glyndwr, pictures and updates will be posted on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Giraffe project called Christopher for disability children

 St Christopher’s School in Wrexham, the largest specialist disability school in Wales has approached the British Ironwork Centre for help. Following the editorial in the Shropshire Magazine saying how the British Ironworks had helped Hope House Children’s Hospice with a Giraffe for their sensory garden St Christopher’s wanted one too for their own sensory garden.

St Christopher’s is attended by children age 6-19 years old and has about 310 children and students in attendance at present, all of which with the widest range of learning needs and disabilities.

Clive Knowles, Chairman of The British Ironwork Centre, Maxine Pittaway MBE Headmistress of St Christopher’s and Paula Evans Jones of the Ironworks.

The school is attended by children from all over Shropshire, Cheshire, Denbighshire and the rest of Wales. The school have asked for a giraffe to be created for Easter 2017 in preparation for their Open day and will be unveiled in their new sensory garden.

Sophia Knowles, Operations Director at the Ironworks has said “The school is so deserving, we are always so keen to help”.

Maxine Pittaway MBE, Headmistress for St Christopher’s said, “The centre does so much for the local community, we were doubtful they’d be able to help us as well, really they are wonderful. The centre are also facilitating free places in their Grotto for some of the children to attend, free of any cost.”
