Jacquie and Ann are delighted that Cardiff Council has helped save the Hawthorn School siteLocal Lib Dem councillors for Llandaff North Ann Rowland-James and Jacqui Hooper are celebrating the news that Cardiff's Lib Dem Council is saving the Hawthorn Junior School building from demolition.

The Council has announced that the building is to be sold to the Steiner charity, who will once again use it as a school.

After the school site stopped being used a few years ago, local Lib Dem Councillors Ann Rowland-James and Jacqui Hooper have been backing local residents in their fight to save the historic building. Ann and Jacqui objected to previous plans which would have seen the building demolished to make way for flats, and have been fighting hard to save the building.

Jacqui Hooper said: "We're so pleased all the campaigning has paid off and this historic building will be saved."

Ann Rowland-James added: "It's taken several years and many battles, but at last our community has the result it wanted."
