Pant Memorial Artwork Installation

The date has now been set for the installation of the artwork commissioned by Pant Memorial Hall.

The ceramic artwork measuring about 1m by 3m will be installed on the wall next to the front entrance to the Hall on Friday, 24th May.

Artist Neil Dalrymple and volunteers from the Hall’s committee will be installing the artwork which is due to take the best part of a day, with the finishing touches being applied once the ceramic cement has set.

The artwork was commissioned by the Hall to be a commemoration of the centenary of the end of the First World War and has been generously funded by The Rotary Club of Oswestry’s Mary Hignett Bequest Fund and the Tirgwynt Wind Farm Community Fund.

Speaking about the installation, Helen, Secretary at Pant Memorial Hall said: “Our village hall was founded as a permanent reminder of the First World War and those that suffered in it. Our artwork is designed to honour their memory in a colourful and vibrant way.”

The artwork is a 3D ceramic mural and has been made by Neil 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 Helen: “We are really looking forward to installing the artwork and everyone is welcome to come and see it over the next few weeks. We are currently drawing up plans for a formal launch event, probably in the summer, so watch this space!”

The committee at the hall have also taken the opportunity of developing a small section of the car park at the hall into an Armistice 100 garden to enhance the setting for the artwork.
