Pride In Barry is delighted to announce the establishment of its' Blue Plaque Scheme.

Many men and women of distinction have either been born in Barry, or have spent a significant part of their lives here. We are extremely proud to acknowledge 10 people and it is our intention to affix Blue Plaques to houses associated with these people.

The public have nominated worthy individuals of distinction who fit the criteria;

  • must have been born in Barry, educated in Barry or at least spent a significant part of their lives in Barry
  • should not still be living
  • must be persons of distinction who are regarded as eminent by their peers and of whom Barry can be proud
  • must be reasonably well known

A Ceremony took place on Saturday 21st November 2009 to announce the first 10 commemorative Blue Plaques to invited guests which included relatives of those commemorated, as well as current homeowners.
