BBC News – Community ‘united’ by restoration


A former school in Conwy is hosting line dancing sessions, weddings and funerals after being turned into a community centre.

Llanrhos Old School, built in 1822, is enjoying a new lease of life after a £240,000 restoration project.

It was paid for through grants and donations from local people.

Project manager David Rowley says he has been inundated with requests to use the centre, which had “pulled together all threads of the community”.
