A SPECIAL event to celebrate the history of Blessed Edward Jones School in Rhyl before it closes will be held later this month.

Former pupils and staff are invited along to the event which takes place at 6.30pm on Thursday June 27 and will be an opportunity for people to share stories, tour the school and enjoy refreshments.

Former pupil Chris Ruane, MP for Vale of Clwyd, is urging all those who previously attended either as a pupil or staff to go along.

“It would be fantastic to meet those who have been at the school in the past,” he added.

“This will be the last opportunity to see the school and maybe relive some old memories before it closes.”
