Community Power

The year 1777 was a tumultuous year in terms historical significance. Over the pond, George  Washington’s men were fighting for Independence, and further afield, Captain Cook had discovered Christmas island.

On a more provincial level in the beautiful village of Llanarmon near Mold in North Wales, the lime mortar pointing was probably being completed to the ridges of the new school in readiness for its first intake of proud pupils.

Grade II listed Llanarmon Yn Ial old school became the hub of the community until recently when it started to fall into disrepair and at risk.

The community managed to raise enough funds to bring this beautiful building back to life and put it back at the heart of the locale.

Grosvenor sensitively conserved the existing building and built a new extension with the latest facilities to serve as a village meeting room.
