Second public meeting announced over Plas Madoc Leisure Centre takeover plans

A second public meeting has been announced as plans for a community takeover of Plas Madoc Leisure Centre take shape.

The Plas Madoc Community Group – formed after the first public meeting on March 13 – is calling on residents to turn out in force and once again show their support for the volunteer-led rescue bid.

The next meeting will take place at Air Products Social Club in Acrefair from 7.30pm on Tuesday, April 8, when committee members will update the public on their ‘rapid’ progress.

Chairman Darrell Wright, who lives in Trevor, said: “We had a fantastic turn-out of between 150 and 200 people at the first and we’re hoping for even more this time – we need as many as possible to show their support.

“We’re feeling positive and we’ve got some really good momentum going, so we need people to show their enthusiasm again and show that they want this.

“We’re making huge strides and the experts we have on board are helping us get through what should take months in a few weeks, so there’s plenty to update the public on. We’ll also be collecting donations on the night as our fundraising begins in earnest.”

The PMCG also includes John Gallanders, an expert in community-run enterprises; residents including Alison Roberts, one of the founders of the original Save Plas Madoc campaign and Clwyd South AM Ken Skates.

Darrell added: “We’re also asking people to take a few minutes to complete a short questionnaire, which could help future funding applications and will also be key in helping us keep people updated as our rapid progress continues.”
