What a wonderful day, at long last this day will go into the history books as the day things looked very bright for the Seiont ward.
The announcement that the new Hendre School plans have been accepted!
My sincere congratulations goes to everyone involved in the Hendre School project.
I have the privilege on being a Governor at the school and the news that planning permission has been approved last night is music to my ears.
I would like to thank the following people who were directly involved in the project.
Councillor Roy Owen who has worked tirelessly throughout the project and without whom, we wouldn't have got anywhere.
Councillor Tudor Owen who was an important link in proceedings and was the only other Gwynedd Councillor involved in the application.
The Head Teacher Arwel Jones, who has had many a sleepless night over the whole affair and Council Officers, Iwan Trefor Jones and Dafydd Gibbard who have worked long hours ensuring things went to plan.
I would also like to thank my fellow Governors who made meetings pleasant and thrashed out any impending problems early
Many thanks also goes to all the councillors who voted yes for the new school. It is such a shame some sectors were against it, but as with everything good. Common sense prevailed in the end.
I now look forward to seeing the foundations laid in this historic moment in the town's history.
