The courses above are free thanks to funding from Wrexham Traditional Building Skills Programme; which has been funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014–20, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
Our Traditional Building Skills Programme is linked to Wrexham Townscape Heritage Scheme, a grant programme within Wrexham Town Centre Conservation area. The funding for this heritage-led regeneration programme has come from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The five year project will look to restore and conserve many of Wrexham’s historically important buildings making them attractive for local businesses and individuals, combining training, education and raising awareness through upskilling via the Traditional Building Skills Programme.
Thanks to National Lottery players they will now play a new and very practical role in restoring our local heritage.
