Cllr Paul Rogers, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti-Poverty, with responsibility for Leisure, said: “We know that there’s plenty of grassroots sporting and fitness clubs out there across Wrexham with a lot of hard work going into each of them – and it’d be a shame if they missed out of possible funding which could help them grow or improve what they offer.

“I’d urge anyone interested to get in touch with the Active Wrexham team.”
