Ysgol Penygloddfa pupils were so inspired after visiting Llys Glan yr Afon extra care scheme when it was being built that they came up with a logo for The Orangery restaurant.

Ninety pupils visited the building site in July last year and used their creative skills to work on a project to design a logo for the Orangery.
The logos were so good that several were shortlisted. Matthew Davies, 11, was thrilled to hear that his logo had won when it was announced in a school assembly. He was invited to unveil the logo at Llys Glan yr Afon with his classmates and residents.

Matthew said: “This is awesome – I couldn’t believe I had won and it’s great to see my logo on the walls of the restaurant.”
The runners-up were Piper Lloyd, Jack Grant, Lauren Jervis and Lauryn Watson-Smythe.
Headteacher Jim MacDonald said: "At Ysgol Penygloddfa we are passionate about our links with the community and were therefore very excited when we were approached about this project last Summer. It was a heart-warming experience to observe pupils chatting to residents and we look forward to a long and extremely beneficial partnership." 
Anne Hinchey, Chief Executive of Wales & West Housing, said: “It’s wonderful to see how residents have settled into the community since they moved in last November and how pupils from Ysgol Penygloddfa have enjoyed designing a logo for the restaurant. Llys Glan yr Afon is a significant milestone for Powys and we would like to thank our partners, Powys County Council, and the Welsh Government, for helping to make this possible.”
