Welcome!

Welcome

Croeso
Welcome
Bienvenue
Welkom

…to the Belgian Refugees in Rhyl project website.

We are researching the Belgians who came to the North East of Wales in the early years of the First World War. If you have any stories, photographs or objects relating to the Belgian Refugees, please get in touch via the “Contact” page – we’d love to hear from you!

Use the menu at the top of the page to navigate the website, finding information about the welcome given in different towns, about individual families and the people who looked them, and the places where they stayed.

Thanks to…

Rhyl Town Council

We would like to thank Rhyl Town Council for allowing us the very great honour of presenting the Town Crest to the city council of Aarschot in 2014.

 

Rhyl History Club

The whole idea for this project came from a post to their blog in 2012. For more about them and the history of Rhyl, please visit http://www.rhylhistoryclub.wordpress.com

 

Aarschot City Council, Belgium

Who welcomed us to their city when we visited, and who are very enthusiastic about our project.

    • Thanks for your message, Mr. Lyons.
      There is no public lecture planned in the near future, but we’ll post any info about lectures or meetings which may come up on the Latest News page.
      Thanks again.

      • Mr. Lyons,
        We will be talking to a local group in September, with a focus on the Refugee Committee in Rhyl. When the group has published their new season programme, I’ll get in touch. It would be great to see you there.
