Tŷ Pawb offers an extensive range of family activities during the school holidays. These activities are mainly based around arts and crafts, but also include games, gardening and music.

We are particularly looking for volunteers to support us in the delivery of family drop-in arts and crafts sessions.

Recruiting volunteers to help us with this enables us to keep as many of the activities as possible free to attend and accessible for Wrexham’s community.
