Enjoy the benefits of living in, or visiting this splendid village community!

Cilcain is one of the finest places to live in North East Wales. Many families move home within Cilcain, but few leave the village! Find out about the wide range of village activities.  If you organise a village activity, or offer a trade or service, let me know so that you can be included.

Dropping litter isn’t cool!

If you are a visitor to our village we hope you enjoy the splendid scenery around Cilcain and whatever activity you set out to do.

But Please - Don’t be a tosser - Take your litter home!

Keith Humphreys has researched the names on the war memorials in our church and chapel and has published the details on the Flintshire War Memorials web site.  Why not take a look on this 100th anniversary of the Great War?

I received the mono image (Email below) on 15.10.15. The colour image is Christmas 2015


My dad Robert Henry McBride, (r.i.p) took the picture (c. 1963), at the time he was the photographer for The Liverpool College of Building. I later became a student at the same college.

The reason we were in Cilcain, was that as a family we were members of the Camping Club of Great Britain and Ireland and members of the Liverpool and North West Wales section. Camping in Wales for us was a very regular event, I may be able to find record of who's farm field we used?

I will check to see if there are more suitable pictures for you?
