Plas Madoc campaign thrown £50k lifeline

The Daily Post is reporting that the campaign to re-open Plas Madoc leisure centre has been thrown a £50,000 lifeline by Wrexham Council.

Clwyd South AM Ken Skates, who has played a leading role in the campaign, said in a statement:
“I’m delighted that significant progress is being made and that the council has now decided that it should support our plans to reopen Plas Madoc.
 
"I would like to pay tribute to the remaining group of Labour councillors for their unwavering and unequivocal support for Plas Madoc and for the community, and for their determination over this major issue.
 
“Although the one-off £50,000 grant mentioned is only half of what the Trust and Labour councillors had appealed for, we have pulled off what appears to be a miraculous victory. I look forward to hearing more about how the council will support us.”
