45 volunteers spent a sunny Bank Holiday Monday working hard painting and cleaning the Connah’s Quay baths which will now be known as the Cambrian Aquatic Sports Centre, in preparation for today’s handover. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The first year of operation will see Flintshire County Council contribute £65,000 to the running costs of the pool, Connah’s Quay Town Council have also contributed £15,000 to the running of the pool. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The transfer of the swimming baths to a social enterprise came in the face of possible closure to one of Deeside’s key leisure assets as council funding shortfalls began to bite.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
