Chirk & Weston Rhyn

Chirk & Weston Rhyn Branch was founded in 1967 and will therefore be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year. This branch has a rich history of association with and support of the hospital. From assisting with patient education and feeding in the late 1970s to providing entertainment. For several years, long stay spinal unit patients were regularly collected from the hospital for outings in the summer months and taken to Brynkinalt Hall, Chirk by kind permission of the Hill Trevor family. Patients were able to enjoy the gardens, given tea and then played games, which were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We have no fixed meeting days but tend to meet every couple of months and more often when an event is forthcoming.

Meetings are currently held at The Hand Hotel, Church Street, Chirk LL14 5EY. We are always looking for new members. You can be assured of a friendly warm welcome from everyone and we look forward to hearing from you.

If you are interested in joining our branch or would like more information please contact:
