Have you discovered the Wonders of Wrexham yet?

Have you discovered the county’s hidden gems and the wonders of Wrexham yet?

Last year in a bid to showcase local talent and celebrate the hidden gems in the county borough, Wrexham Council launched its ‘Wonders of Wrexham 2018’ calendar competition.

Over the course of 12 months amateur photographers from across the area submitted images to be considered for the calendar.

Winning images included Acton Park in the summer, St Giles Church, Trevor Wharf, the Anna Maria Peel Memorial Chapel in Overton on Dee and many, many more!

Often one of the main criticisms we see online is that there is “nothing to do in Wrexham” and that generally (and wrongly) Wrexham isn’t a nice place to live.

It is hoped that the calendar, which is still available to buy, will help draw attention to the county’s hidden gems and encourage more people to explore what the area has to offer.

If you haven’t seen the calendar yet, make sure you grab a copy from the Tourist Information Centre on Queens Square, library or museum and you will find 12 truly fantastic, local images.

The calendars cost £3 each or two for £5.
