Creative youngsters answer the call for artistic masterpieces

Pupils at Ysgol Bro Famau have been getting all creative – all in aid of their local community.

Children from the school’s Llanferres and Llanarmon yn Ial sites were invited to draw up some designs that would be included on an information panel in traditional red telephone kiosks at Maeshafn and Eryrys.

This project is the brainchild of Cadwyn Clwyd, the rural regeneration agency where they have  re-created the kiosks to provide a range of services to locals and visitors in countryside villages with local communities raising some of the necessary cash.

The project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

The kiosks act as tourist information points offering brief histories of the area along with details of points of interest, recommendations for visits and walks and the flora and fauna found locally.

Headteacher of Ysgol Bro Famau,  Elizabeth Knight, said: “We are delighted that the work is being displayed in some of the local communities which feed the school. 

“Our pupils created collages reflecting their local environment – the hills, the scenery, wildlife and nature – and we had great fun.   This is yet another example of how the school gets involved in local community initiatives, for the benefit of local residents. We were delighted to be part of this project and the pupils are proud that their work is on show”.
