We, the undersigned wish to ensure the future of the building formerly known as Grove Park Girls' School, Wrexham. This building was built as a dedicated girls' grammar school in 1938 after formerly sharing a building with Grove Park Boys' School. The building is now falling into disrepair and we are afraid that our local Council will see fit to demolish it if it becomes too delapidated. It is a beautiful red brick building and has many features of historical interest. With the rise in population recently, we feel that there could well be a need in a few year's time for it to be used again as a school. However the building could be put to good use for many cultural purposes but the main concern at the moment is that it should not fall further into disrepair. Please sign our petition so that we may urge local Councillors to preserve this important part of Wrexham's heritage.

    This building has served many people admirably and deserves better treatment.

    Building the two new super schools did not work in my opinion - and perhaps instead of messing around with the Peoples Market and the traders livelihood - maybe Grove Park could live on as the Arts Hub the council wants so desperately

    Grove Park girls school must not be demolished. It was the most beautiful school with its Italian marble sweeping staircase, its quads and extensive cellars which must hold articles from our concerts and plays. My eldest sister was one of the first pupils there and remembers it well with fondness. The teaching skills were fantastic and there was an immense sense of pride at having been a pupil there. The whole ambience of the school was wonderful and skills were nurtured.
    Wrexham Council must not be allowed to demolish this icon. During the last forty/fifty years they have done untold damage to the town by demolishing most of its history. The Victorian glass roofed market, Stephens Café and so many other notable historical buildings have been smashed to the ground and plastic and glass monstrosities erected in their place. Wrexham now looks like a suburb of Liverpool as it then was forty years ago. Liverpool is now a beautiful city which has been sympathetically restored and is now thriving. Wrexham has regressed so badly that I no longer want to shop there. The place is ugly
    and dirty with so many boarded up shops. It was a thriving market town bustling with people with many varied shops and cinemas etc. Please do not let Wrexham Council get their paws on Grove Park Girls grammar school. Could it not be expanded sympathetically, preserving the original school. There must be many talented architects who could do this tastefully, integrating any new building
    s in red brick. We must not allow this building to be razed to the ground as have so many other beautiful historical buildings in Wrexham.

    I attended this school and received an excellent education. Shame on the council for allowing this school to fall into disrepair.
