THE Friends of Ysgol Dolafon are asking for help from the local community to enable them to completely revamp the school’s play area.

The old outdated playground equipment has now been removed, so the plan is to redesign the area, install new equipment and incorporate a memorial to the Raine children.

As the group don’t have the skills to do all the work themselves, they’re calling upon the expertise and support of local residents.

A spokesman said: “Anyone who could help in any way is invited to get involved. If you’re a builder, carpenter, keen DIY-er or just generally happy to get your hands dirty and offer some time and maybe equipment, get in touch.

“Also, as part of the memorial, the friends would like an outdoor gazebo erected and will be putting the work out to tender.”

To offer help with the project, to tender, or for more information, contact Kate by phoning the school on 01591 610326 or email

Kate said: “We are so fortunate to have such a caring community and we know together we can create a memorial and play area the children of Ysgol Dolafon deserve.”
