Community gets school field

First published in

Community campaigners in Pontgarreg are celebrating after getting the go-ahead to lease part of the former village school grounds.

Pontgarreg Community Field Group want to create a community garden with a playground and park.

The group say that the school area would make a better playing field for the village as it is overlooked by houses and is a safe place for children to play.

Ceredigion's Cabinet gave the go-ahead to the plan this week. The former school building and a piece of adjoining land will be put up for sale on the open market.

Local member Gwyn James said: "This is exactly what everyone wanted."
