£7.6m Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor building opens at Glynllifon

A new multi-million pound college building is being officially opened in Gwynedd.

Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's £7.6m Pentref Addysg @ Glynllifon, near Caernarfon, is part of a wider £10m scheme to refurbish the campus.

The college offers agricultural and land management courses for students aged between 14 and 19 in the historic grounds of the Glynllifon estate.

First Minister Carwyn Jones will officially open the building.

The £10m project involved building a new teaching block and updating residential accommodation on the site.

The college announced in 2009 that it had secured Welsh government funding to develop the campus.
