Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, a former goods shed on the Prestatyn to Dyserth walkway has been redeveloped as a community hub.
In its heyday, Meliden’s goods shed was a key stopping place on the old railway line which served both the mining and tourist trades. Now, after a four-year project, the Grade II listed building is a space for up-and-coming businesses and artists and crafters. It also has an onsite café, heritage and meeting room.
Meliden Residents Action Group members and Denbighshire County Councillor Peter Evans officially opened the building and unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion. Cllr Evans was joined by Grŵp Cynefin chief executive Shan Lloyd Williams, community initiatives manager Mair Edwards, and local historian Robert Jones.
Cllr Evans told the group: “All those years ago, when I was playing at the goods shed as a boy, never did I imagine that I would be stood here again one day, officially reopening this building. Meliden Residents Action Group and Grŵp Cynefin have worked hard together to turn dreams into reality. Meliden and the wider area has a facility to be truly proud of.”
