THE Portuguese speaking community of Wrexham (CLPW) are hosting an event to celebrate the launch of their new booklet, in which they share their 'fondness' of living within the area.

The event will be held on October 30 at The Guidehall between 1.30pm until 2.30pm.

The Our Story project has been supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and CLPW have made history as their booklet is the first publication in Wales to be printed in Portuguese, Welsh and English.

All are welcome to attend this event and will be provided with light refreshments.

Director at CLPW CIC/Race Council Cymru North Wales, Iolanda Banu Viegas, said: "CLPW Cic and the Portuguese Diáspora from Wrexham are very proud to be able to share 'Our Story' with all our communities in Wrexham, Wales and beyond.

"Thanks to Heritage Funds Cymru, we're launching the first booklet in Welsh, Portuguese and English.

"We hope that this book leaves a positive mark in history.

"A big thank you to all that took part in our booklet, with special thanks to the Head of Heritage Dr Marian Gwyn and Wrexham Council for all the support to make another dream come true."
