Can anybody help?

Does anybody in Cilcain or the locality have a large barn or covered space to accommodate a fantastic sculptor for 1 year?
Nick Eames is a sculptor living and working in Cilcain who is desperate for a larger space in which to create his work, in particular, a piece he is working on for submission to the Royal Academy in London.
In lieu of paying rent, Nick will instead create a fantastic garden sculpture for the person/s who can offer him this working space, which would be worth in the region of £15,000 were it to be a private commission.
‘Kokopelli’, a large recently finished piece, can be seen outside Capel Gad in Cilcain, and ‘The Dancer’ (pictured) can be seen at The Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead. More information about Nick and his work can be found on his website:
If you, or anybody you know, would be keen be involved in this fabulous partnership, please get in touch!

‘The Dancer’, Willamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead

'Buddies', a sculpture featuring the thumb-prints of pupils of Ysgol-y-Foel, soon to go on display in the Old School Yard conversion at Cilcain Village Hall

‘Kokopelli’, a mythical native American traveller who brings the promise of a fruitful harvest to each village that welcomes this prankster, healer, minstrel and storyteller. This sculpture can be seen outside Capel Gad, Ffordd y Llan, Cilcain.

Busy, busy, busy!

It’s going to be a busy day here in Cilcain!
The new Community Shop opened its doors for trading at 8.30 this morning.  Located in the former Committee Room of the Village Hall, the shelves and fridges are now fully stocked with bread, bakes, groceries, drinks, sweets and other goodies, and you can pre-order your bread for collection from today.  They’re open until 12.00 noon – pop in to say hello, take a look at what they’ve been doing and hear their plans for the future!
From 1.00 pm, the main Hall will open its doors wide to welcome you to our Community Café, hosted this week by the Johnson family in loving memory of David.  There will be refreshments, home-made cakes, strawberries & cream, a pre-loved clothes rail, a raffle and tombola, plus live music from Bernard and Carole.  You can also take a look around the Old School Yard garden conversion currently under construction (the planting is fantastic!) and try out David’s Seat, a beautiful bench crafted from Welsh oak and stone, all to a lovely design created by Simon Richards.
We look forward to seeing you at Cilcain Village Hall today!
