Caerwys History Book Launch

Delyn MP David Hanson attended the launch of a new book chronicling the history of Caerwys.

 

Over 100 local residents crammed into the Town Hall to get their free copy of ‘Caerwys- a History Since Victorian Times’ by Dr Tim Erasmus

 

Around the Town Hall there was a display of the most striking photographs from the book, and of Caerwys historical artefacts.

 

Back in 2009 The Caerwys Historical Society formed a Committee to steer the ‘Discover Caerwys’ booklet project, where it was agreed that a more substantive history book would be produced. The funding for the book came from a number of sources, including the Welsh Assembly and a local cash donation.

 

David Hanson said:

 

“I want to pay tribute to the steering committee that helped put together this book in little over a year.

 

“It is without a doubt an excellent book written by local historian Tim Erasmus. Of course, it will be of interest to local residents but I am sure its appeal will go much further.

 

“I will be sending a copy to the House of Commons Library as it has a whole chapter devoted to the town’s then MP Herbert Lewis who lived in the town till his death.”
