In Spring 2017 Bridgend Town Council was awarded grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop a project in Bridgend Town Centre to mark the role that Bridgend played in World War 2.

The project includes a number of education and participation activities aimed at community members and schools, culminating in the development of a heritage walkway supported by digital resources within Bridgend town centre.

History Talks

In Spring 2018 we ran a series of 4 History Talks, each focusing on one aspect of the Heritage. These were very popular and well-attended.
