We want to hear from the public on their ideas on how to spend the money made from selling the Old County School in Tregaron.

£100,645 is held following the sale of the property in February 2022.

The money is currently held by the charity Cardiganshire Intermediate and Technical Education Fund, where Ceredigion County Council is a trustee. A sub-group has been set up to look at the how to use this money, with members from Ceredigion County Council, Tregaron Town Council, Ysgol Henry Richard and Cylch Meithrin Tregaron.

A public consultation will be held for 8 weeks and will end on 10 May 2023 to gather views on how best to spend the funds. The money must be used to advance education in the area for children aged 3-16 in Tregaron.

Councillor Keith Evans, Chairman of the Charity Trustee Committee, said: “The money raised through the sale of the old school building is a great opportunity to make a positive contribution towards the education, language and future of our young people. I would like to encourage all residents in this area to submit their individual ideas”.
