Splash Magic Leisure Centre in Plas Madoc, Wrexham is to receive a £500,000 grant from the Welsh Government as part of its Community Facilities programme.
The grant will help fund a series of urgent repairs to the centre including a replacement roof, fixing wiring and insulation, replacing pool plant equipment and upgrading the CCTV and fire alarm.
Announcing the funding, Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children, Carl Sargeant, said the grant would ensure the centre is fit for purpose and could continue to provide vital services to the local area.
Carl Sargeant said:
“The centre is an important community facility. It is not only used for sports and fitness activities. As well as a community café there is a children’s soft play area and community meeting space all of which are well used by a range of groups including Communities First and Citizens Advice.
“I am pleased to approve this grant so that work can start on the facility and help make it sustainable into the future.”
