The Heritage Lottery Funded grant awarded to Dr Williams' School Old Girls' Association has created much interest and has motivated ex-pupil Janet Lougee from Cross Inn Llanon, to undertake research in collaboration with Hazel Thomas, Manager of People's Collection Wales, at the National Library of Wales Aberystwyth.
Dr Williams' School closed in 1975, but has not been forgotten by its thriving Old Girls' Association who were awarded £51,300 six months ago to record and celebrate the story of this Dolgellau school and its community.
Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, Nr Newtown are pleased to announce that they will be repeating the Childrens Trail for the duration of the school summer holidays.

The reopening of a storm damaged section of the Cambrian Coast line north of Barmouth as far as Harlech on Thursday 1st May has been warmly welcomed by a Mid Wales tourism leader.

Val Hawkins, chief executive of MWT, which represents more than 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Mid and South Wales, described the reopening of the line in time for the Bank Holiday weekend as “great news” for tourism businesses and visitors alike.

Train services have been disrupted since early January when storms and tidal surges caused widespread damage, with Llanaber, north of Barmouth, one of the worst affected areas.

Network Rail is investing £10 million in a programme of storm repairs along the line, which saw the section from Machynlleth to Barmouth reopen in February.
