A MEMORIAL pirate ship in honour of a five-year-old Capel Bangor boy who tragically died following a car crash has been unveiled at his primary school.

Llong Ned was unveiled at Ysgol Gymraeg at the beginning of the term as a tribute to Ned Jones, a popular pupil in the reception class, who died along with his grandmother Margaretta Jones in a crash on Good Friday.

The pirate ship which has an engraved copy of Ned’s signature on it (seen being unveiled by brother Tomi) was paid for using £3,000 collected in his memory. Ned’s parents Bleddyn and Sharon and his brother Cai also attended.

Headmaster Clive Williams said: “Llong Ned was officially opened at Ysgol Gymraeg at the beginning of the new term as a permanent commemoration for Ned Jones.

“Ned is remembered as a very caring and popular member of the school community, who is very sadly missed by all.

“A collection of nearly £3,000 by the school in his remembrance has been used to create a large pirate ship on the school campus."
