Residents past and present of the villages of Rhydymwyn and
Hendre attended the finale of a two-year project with a very
successful launch of the book
"Rhydymwyn and Hendre-A Tale of Two Villages" .
A working party under the umbrella of Friends of Rhydymwyn Valley
with funding from Cadwyn Clwyd produced the  book which looks
at the history of the two neighbouring communities.
The book is in both English and Welsh and covers both the
modern and ancient history of the villages.   
The official launch events, took place to packed houses at the
Royal Oak Inn, Hendre on Friday 14 August 2009
and at the Antelope Hotel, Rhydymwyn on Monday 17 August 2009.
Both hostelries are featured in the book.
The Oak sold 70 copies of the book on the first night and so far
books have gone as far afield as France and Australia
This is the 1343rd mug for our collection
at Y Dderwen- The Oak.
It was brought to us by one of our regular
folk night presenters.
