Treuddyn Urdd Project

Urdd

Treuddyn is proud to be the home of the Urdd, which was founded in the village in 1922.

A dedicated group of archivists have collated a vast amount of photographs, articles and interviews covering Urdd events over the years.  To provide a permanent record available to all the villagers it was decided to attempt to get funding to professionally collate the information in a book (for distribution to all village households) and to provide a Timeline for display in Treuddyn Village Hall.

Treuddyn Community Council is one of the first groups in the UK to receive a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) All Our Stories grant.  This exciting project called`Treuddyn Urdd’ has been given £9,000 to tell the story of how Treuddyn was the first community to establish a local Urdd group in 1922. Since then the Urdd has grown as a national organisation, from 722 members in 1922 to over 50,000 members today.

All Our Stories, a brand new small grant programme, launched earlier this year in support of BBC Two’s The Great British Story – has been designed as an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage.  With HLF funding and support, community groups will carry out activities that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage.

Please see the  Treuddyn Urdd HLF press release for further information.
