Yr Hen Ysgol Dinas

More Good News for Yr Hen Ysgol!

We are delighted to announce that our application to the National Lottery Community Fund (formerly the Big Lottery Wales) has secured a grant of £8817 for our project ‘Yr Hen Ysgol Dinas’ Community Wellbeing’. This exciting award will enable us to upgrade the kitchen facilities, provide furnishings for Garn Fach meeting room, and fund planters, garden furniture and landscaping for both front and rear outside areas of Yr Hen Ysgol.


The Old School at Dinas Cross was generously gifted to the people of Dinas Cross by the Barony of Kemaes, who, in the 19th Century, originally gave the land to the community of Dinas Cross to build a school.   It is now administered by Trustees and run by an elected Management Committee.  If you would like to, you may become a friend of Yr Hen Ysgol Dinas and make regular donations.  Any proceeds are spent on the upkeep of the old school. Recent major developments include replacing flat roofs with pitched roofs, replacing ill-fitting windows, renovating damp walls and creating a rear access lobby.  The building is now used to run a number of local activities, details of which are posted elsewhere on this site.  The hall and it’s meeting rooms are also available for hire.

Would you like to become a Friend of Yr Hen Ysgol?  We would love you to join us to ensure the future of this wonderful village facility.  For further information please see details at Friends page.
