[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Connah’s Quay swimming pool officially opens today under new management following the completion of its community asset transfer from Flintshire Council.

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]
