The hometown of Pontypool Poet, artist and National Eisteddfod winner Myfanwy Haycock was the inspiration for many of her wonderful poems. The Myfanway Hancock Poetry Trail app allows everyone to enjoy those poems in the places they were inspired.
The app contains three trails between 2 and 8 miles. As you approach each stop one of Myfanwy’s poems automatically begins to play. Words and pictures complement the audio to provide a real sense of place. An offline map ensures you can always find you way. The app also contains a ‘poetry wheel’ and you can create unique Myfanwy Hancock postcards to share.
BBC Broadcaster and Pontypool-born Jenni Crane has been the driving force behind the project and along with the app there has been a large wooden sculpture of Myfanwy, a BBC programme that tells her astonishingly undiscovered story and several community events – the app being launched at the unveiling of the sculpture.
From the very first phone call, to Our MHPT App launching, AT Creative have been fantastic to work with. Dan gave so much guidance and support, every step of the way. Not only has the service been exceptional, but the APP looks wonderful. We are so delighted to have worked with AT Creative and even though we were glad to have launched our APP – we felt sad to not have our sometimes-daily Dan emails! However, we know they are closely watching and will be there to support should we need! Thanks so much for going above and APP board!Jenni Crane, BBC Broadcaster and Myfanwy Hancock champion
