Show Off at the Eisteddfod

The County Council is after groups, teams, businesses or individuals that can join us in Monmouthshire’s exciting area of the National Eisteddfod (29 July – 6 August).  They’re looking for those who can provide activities/stalls that show 155,000 visitors that Monmouthshire is a place that they want to come back to visit again. The application form and more information is at https://gallery.mailchimp.com/edad32c374f481d578f27998e/files/Application_Form_Monmouthshire_s_Area.pdf.

All applications will be assessed and a final programme drawn up. The stalls will complement a full, exciting programme that is already planned for the area.   Contact events@monmouthshire.gov.uk with any comments, queries or suggestions.

A Manifesto for Heritage

A recently formed alliance of high profile heritage organisations urges politicians to recognise the economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits of Welsh Heritage. The Wales Heritage Group Manifesto calls on the political parties to acknowledge the worth of the sector and to support, resource and develop this vital part of Wales’ economy and identity. “Heritage is key for promoting sustainable development, supporting wider regeneration, facilitating investment and enhancing skills for jobs”, says the group of heritage experts. The Manifesto can be downloaded from: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-1_KCzkTqCHbE12UldTNXV3ME0/view?usp=sharing. For more information contact walesheritagegroup@gmail.com
