The volunteer-run group formed to save Plas Madoc Leisure Centre will hold its latest public meeting next week.
On Thursday night (July 10) the Splash Community Trust will provide an update on its plans to reopen the popular facility as a social enterprise.
And organisers are calling on residents to show their continuing support by turning out in force at 7.30pm at Air Products Social Club in Acrefair.
Chairman Darrell Wright said: “It’s a chance to keep members of the public and supporters up to date with what’s happening. People might think it’s gone a bit quiet recently, but there’s still a massive amount of work going on behind the scenes.”
Clwyd South AM Ken Skates, another of the trust’s founder members, added: “We have enjoyed fantastic support from the public so far, and I would ask you to stick with us while we continue with our efforts to save Plas Madoc.
“It can’t be done overnight and we still need to raise a huge amount of money, but as long as the will, the enthusiasm and the support remain then we have every chance of reopening the centre and achieving something amazing.”
The trust’s most recent fundraiser, a race night, was held at the Old Black Horse in Rhostyllen on Friday and raised almost £600.
Co-organiser and Splash Community Trust director Greg Ogden, from Trevor, said: “The race night went really well and was another success in financial terms. I would particularly like to thank the landlords Keith and Wendy and the locals in Rhostyllen who dug deep to help us raise as much as possible.”
