A mobile dental unit which served thousands of children across north Wales is to be reinstated after a campaign started by Denbighshire schoolchildren.

Pupils at Ysgol Caer Drewyn, Corwen, have been campaigning to re-instate their mobile dental unit and had received backing from Plaid Cymru’s North Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd during a recent visit.

The visited the Senedd in Cardiff Bay this week to hand over their petition to the National Assembly’s Petitions Committee.

They were delighted to hear from Llyr Gruffydd, who has been campaigning with the children, that he had received information that the Health Board would re-instate the unit at the earliest possible opportunity.

Llyr Gruffydd went to see the pupils to break the good news to them and congratulate them on their successful campaign.

Llyr Gruffydd said: “It goes to show that when a group of people put their minds to something that they can achieve great results. This is all down to the children of Ysgol Caer Drewyn and the whole of Corwen should be very proud of them.”
