Monthly Update October 2017

Monthly update, October 2017

 

 

The summer proved to be a busy time for Wireless in Wales.  In addition to the usual maintenance, and welcoming visitors, we took exhibitions to a number of places: 

The Science and Technology Pavilion in the National Eisteddfod in Môn

 

The Radio Amateur Event in the Llyn Brenig Centre 

 

The Denbighshire Archives during Ruthin's 'Open Doors'

 

The North Wales Radio Society from Llandudno visited the Museum one evening also.

 

 

Ieuan Wyn Jones, the former deputy first minister, was our speaker in September.  He gave a very interesting talk on his work as Director of Menai Science Park or M-SParc.  He talked about how science parks in other parts of the world had made a significant contribution to the local economy and had created good jobs.  He explained that the company was working with Bangor University to forge a link between the University and small and large companies.  The park's first building near Gaerwen will open next year.  It will contain offices, laboratories, workshops, a cafe etc.  He said that they already have 8 tenants which is a good number initially for such a park .

 

A full programme of activities has been arranged for the Autumn season.

HLF Project

The 2 year project to develop our learning provision came to an end in April 2013.  It was funded by the Heritage Lotetry Fund and enabled us to have 3 part time members of staff to develop learning resources, improve learning displays, organise events, visits to the museum etc.  Further details available by clicking on Projects in the main menu above or by clicking here.Lottery Logo
