Enbarr Foundation CIC started this petition to Welsh Government and

Enbarr Foundation now requests your support and Voices, so that this building is not sold to another developer and left to sit and fall into further disrepair and another great piece of Heritage and History is lost.

Over the times of doing this project, it had been empowering to hear some of the amazing stories and journeys people have taken alongside the steel industry, and we do want to share them in a peoples Museum within the clocktower, to recognise all those fabulous people in the community who have built these towns, and the industrial sector around us.

The John Summers Clock Tower building is Iconic and with a little TLC, and the help of this amazing community the historic significance of Shotton Steelworks / British Steel can be recorded and left to educate those that follow, to inspire future generations on sectors that helped establish making Britain Great.

Whilst doing our research we have found a fabulous clip from “PATHE NEWS” from when Prince Philip visited the steelworks back in 1953, he stated in this clip “The whole nation is encouraged and inspired every time the steel industry breaks another production record. I have nothing but untold admiration for the Team that is involved working in Steel, And I am sure that this admiration is shared by our people throughout the UK.”

This was the pillar of a highly-skilled community and it can be again, people travelled all over the UK to move here for these jobs, and we just need to provide a place where they can grow and learn alongside organisations and academia working in partnership.

We need to help establish the skill’s back into the Deeside Area to help raise the Pride and Aspirations to be again at the cutting edge of Technological Breakthroughs whilst preserving key Heritage skills needed to preserve this Legacy and promote Incubation and Growth.

We now call upon you for your support, so all our collaborative work and preparation over the past 2 years does not fall and the people’s aspirations are not shattered again.

Help us #savetheclocktower #shottonpoint

Let your voices and signatures be heard, so that we can get the support of the Welsh Government & Flintshire Council to negotiate with the administrators to take our more than generous offer.

This building is for the people and was built by the people, please help us keep this DREAM alive.
