Ysgol Hermon
Ysgol Hermon
This school provided education for local children for 127 years since 1879, and its closure was preceded by a long and bitter fight by the local community when the county council forecast in 2002 that pupil numbers at the school would drop to 30 pupils by 2006.
The case was taken to the high court on two separate occasions, leaving the Hermon campaigners with legal bills of 79,900. These were covered by heroic fund-raising efforts.
When the school closed in June 2006 there were 46 pupils!
The building has since been bought by the community, also through fund-raising, and it now provides pre-school education.
