THE UK Covid-19 Inquiry is coming to Wrexham, with the city’s residents invited to share their pandemic experiences with the inquiry in person. 

The two-day event is part of a series of nationwide Every Story Matters events, in which the public will be invited to share first-hand how the pandemic affected them.

Every Story Matters, the inquiry’s UK-wide listening exercise, is the public’s opportunity to share the impact the pandemic had on them and their life with the inquiry, without the formality of giving evidence or attending a public hearing.

The event will begin on Friday, November 17 from 11am – 5pm at Wrexham Library, with inquiry staff available to explain how people can share their story with the inquiry.

Every Story Matters will support the UK Covid-19 Inquiry’s investigations by providing evidence about the human impact of the pandemic on the UK population. This will help Baroness Hallett make recommendations for the future.


Inquiry secretary, Ben Connah, said: “The inquiry must hear experiences from all corners of the country to ensure we get a full picture of the pandemic’s impact on people living and working across the UK. 

“At our Every Story Matters events this week, people can come down to Wrexham Library to have a chat with us, and I really would encourage people to come and meet us so their experiences can inform the work we’re doing.

“Each of us has a story to tell about the pandemic. Sadly, we know that hundreds of thousands of people lost loved ones, and many more became ill or suffered hardship or isolation. We really want to hear what you have to say.”
