Odd socks dished out in effort to stop closure
Socks are coming to the rescue for a small village school in Wales, the Border Counties Advertiser has announced.

In a clever play on the Save Our Community School anagram Socs, pupils from Ysgol Pontfadog in the Ceiriog Valley have clubbed together with parents and locals to hang their odd socks out to dry, with a long line of hosiery now adorning the school gates.

It is hoped that these concerns will be taken into account when the Wrexham County Borough Council considers the case in June.

Socs committee chairman Jools Payne stated that job losses and already struggling businesses will compound already existing problems for the area.

She added: "The Socs campaign sends a strong message to Wrexham CBC that people in this community will not stand idly by and let them alter the very fabric of the Ceiriog Valley by closing a school that provides pupils with an excellent education on the basis of an unsound argument."

Socks are known to get smelly at times, with thespians using vodka mixed with water to get rid of whiffs from their costumes and legwear, according to al.com.
