The Soames family played a significant part in the development of Wrexham over the years. Apart from creating employment in their brewery, they were philantropists to the town. They donated funds to enable to construction of the Scout Hut on Dean Road that is still in use to this day. They had involvement with Wrexham Football Club and were generous with their sponsorship of the club.

They were also instrumental in bringing electric lighting to the streets of Wrexham!
