Security improvements at Llandudno school following vandalism

CRIME Prevention Services has completed its installation of a CCTV security system across Ysgol Tudno, Llandudno free of charge.

This following the recent vandalism seen at the school which saw 24 windows smashed and outside play equipment damaged.

In March, a youth was arrested in connection with the damage, while Greta Szwarnog, an anaesthetic and recovery practitioner for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, cycled and walked on the Great Orme to raise funds for the school.

The MS for Aberconwy, Janet Finch-Saunders, has been working with the school, stakeholders, and Crime Prevention Services to see CCTV systems installed at the location.

She said: “The vandalism seen at Ysgol Tudno rightly shocked the community. Our schools should be a safe and secure place for all staff and pupils.

“I would like to thank North Wales Police, Conwy County Borough Council, Mrs Iona Hughes, headteacher of Ysgol Tudno and of course, Crime Prevention Services, for working collaboratively with me to see steps taken to safeguard this facility.

“Crime Prevention Services have carried out this outstanding work free of charge which is a truly generous and commendable act that I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Karren Farrell, managing director of Crime Prevention Services, and her team for.

“I would also like to commend Mrs Iona Hughes. Her dedication to this matter and her commitment to the safety of staff and students at Ysgol Tudno has been outstanding.

“I am delighted to have been able to assist in opening lines of communication between the relevant organisation to ensure that the necessary steps were taken to protect this important local school.”
