Volunteers behind plans to reopen Plas Madoc Leisure Centre will hold a public meeting after taking a major step towards achieving their dream.
The Splash Community Trust is calling on ‘anyone who wants to play a part in Plas Madoc’s future’ to turn out and show their support at Air Products Social Club in Acrefair at 7pm on Thursday, (September 18).
Wrexham Council has now agreed in principle to leasing the popular facility to Splash and to injecting £50,000 to reopen the doors before the end of the year.
Chairman Darrell Wright, who lives in Trevor, said: “There is a lot to discuss and a lot of planning and hard work still to come, but we are now finally in a position to look to the future with optimism.
“I would call on anyone who wants to play a part in Plas Madoc’s future to come and show their support. Despite the fantastic progress we’ve made, we cannot succeed without the help of the public – and we’ll need it now more than ever.”
Ken Skates, Labour AM for Clywd South and a Trust member, added: “We need your support to continue raising money, we need your help in spreading the word that Plas Madoc is back in business and, most importantly, we need you to use it when you have it back. “This is an exciting time and I am delighted to have been able to play a part. It’s now time for the public to help make sure it is still around for the next generation to enjoy.”
