We the undersigned call on the Welsh Government to fund a Heritage Centre in Caernarfon. The town deserves a centre to display its history and the history of its people, its industries, its language and its arts in an engaging building purpose-built in Caernarfon as a home for the treasures taken from it.
Close to 1,000 people—residents of Caernarfon and district and visitors to the area are calling for a resource of this nature in what is one of Wales’ most ancient and significant towns. Visitors who take one of my tours around Caernarfon www.drodre.co ask, ‘Where is the Town Museum?, to which the answer is that the town no longer possesses such a thing! This news is met with universal astonishment, given that history surrounds one at every turn.
