An emergency fund of almost £25,000 has been made available to prevent the kitchens from flooding at Welshpool High School this winter.

Urgent drainage works is required after the problem was noticed following a survey of the waste, foul and storm water drainage at the school, installed over 50 years ago.

An initial budget of £15,000 had already been approved for storm water drainage improvements to prevent flooding of the adjacent Flash Leisure Centre's artificial turf pitch which the school uses.

Initial work has been done at a cost of £20,736, the report said and recommended that a further £19,264 be allocated for more work including to the gullies next to the new, multi-use games area and around the gym, science and courtyard areas. 

The estimate cost of all the works is £40,000 and the portfolio holder for education has agreed to make the remaining £25,000 available.
