This page will collect information about the Cerflun Cymunedol Cranogwen Community Monument project.
A newly-launched project aims to celebrate the ambition and success of our pioneering local heroine Cranogwen, who was a mariner, poet, journalist, preacher and campaigner.
We are a project team of women from the communities of Llangrannog and Pontgarreg, West Wales. We are seeking funds to create a life-sized bronze statue to commemorate Cranogwen’s life and achievements, raise her profile and inspire further generations.
Our first event is a Zoom presentation by University of South Wales academic Jane Aaron, who is currently writing a biography of Cranogwen. The talk will be in English and include time for discussion and questions at the end. It is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. Please join us on Friday 26th March (7-8pm) here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ETrUJjrXTjGWNWzIndR_rw
Your support and input into the project would be invaluable. If you would like to donate, please see our Gofundme page at https://gofund.me/4abbacc5 or contact any member of the project team for more information. We would also love to hear from people who would like to contribute in any other way. Please do get in touch with any questions, ideas or special skills you have.
Updates on the project including events, meetings and progress reports will be shared on the Llangrannog Hwb Facebook page and here. To find out more about Cranogwen and the Monumental Welsh Women group, please see here: https://monumentalwelshwomen.com/our-hidden-heroines
