Pant Artwork Commemorates Armistice

Pant Memorial Hall’s ceramic artwork, commissioned as a permanent commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War, has now been installed and is on display for all to see.

The ceramic relief has been placed on the wall next to the front entrance to the hall, alongside a new gravel garden and planters for flowers.

Speaking about the artwork, Sean, chair of trustees at Pant Memorial Institute, said: “Pant Memorial Hall was founded in 1922 as a memorial to the First World War and we wanted to mark 100 years since the Armistice in some way. We consulted with the people of Pant and the artwork we now have reflected a desire to mark the anniversary at the same time as celebrating our village in a colourful way.”

The artwork is a 3D ceramic mural and has been made by Neil Dalrymple in his studio in Ruthin following consultation with residents in Pant. The mural depicts various aspects of the village and surrounding area including landmarks such as the Memorial Hall and Cross Guns pub, as well as the Chapel and limekilns. It also features the flora and fauna of the area and it is hoped it will become a mini tourist attraction for Pant.

Added Sean: “We really hope everyone using the hall enjoys the new artwork and space at the entrance. There’s lots of detail in the artwork so there’s plenty to look out for. The gravel area will add to the look of the entrance and in future we might look at adding a small bench so people can sit while looking at the artwork and flowers.”

The artwork was commissioned by the hall and has been generously funded by The Rotary Club of Oswestry’s Mary Hignett Bequest Fund and the Tirgwynt Wind Farm Community Fund.
