The Ein Cymdogaeth Werin – Preseli Heartlands Communities project, led by PLANED is exploring how connecting with heritage creatively can contribute to health and wellbeing and provide opportunities for young people through ‘hands-on’ heritage experience.
Launched on Saturday 13th October 2018 at Maenclochog Community Hall, the project is helping to bring communities together to explore and identify the local stories, heritage and culture. There are training opportunities, community heritage exhibitions, walks and talks, as well as community based discussions about Preseli area’s heritage and culture. All of this is helping the project to explore and agree a collective approach to how heritage is used and valued and help to strengthen the profile of the Preseli area as a destination for heritage tourism.
The Ein Cymdogaeth Werin – Preseli Heartlands Communities project is part of the Great Place Scheme, a pilot initiative across Wales, putting heritage and culture at the heart of local communities.
