Work to bring new purpose to a closed primary school in the Ceiriog Valley is continuing.

A community engagement programme will be launched to determine the preferred potential use of the Ysgol Pontfadog site following the school’s closure in July.

The first of three informal drop-in sessions, at which all residents of Glyntraian ward and the wider Ceiriog Valley community are welcome, will take place on Wednesday at the Oliver Jones Memorial Hall in Dolywern between 5.30pm and 9pm.

The Glyntraian Community Council (GCC) has teamed up with Rural Development Agency, Cadwyn Clwyd, to appoint Marc Roberts from Cynlas Cyf, to run the programme.

“We look forward to working closely with Marc, Cadwyn Clwyd, Wrexham Council and most importantly, members of our community to explore options for a viable and sustainable future for this key site in the village,” said GCC chairman, Councillor Graham Barrow.

Marc will present his findings to Glyntraian Community Council in February 2020.

“The initial drop in session for the entire community in October is just one of several face to face community engagement and stakeholder sessions Marc will be holding throughout the engagement process,” said GCC’s chairman of the Communications Committee, Jools Payne.

“Now the consultant is in place, we expect to release details of the full consultation programme of events as soon as possible.”

Anyone wishing to learn more about the Cadwyn Clwyd consultation on the Ysgol Pontfadog site is invited to contact the Glyntraian Community Council Clerk in the first instance by emailing or call 07948 214079.

Details of further updates will be posted on the GCC Facebook page and website
