You’ll probably have seen all the recent work taking place at our leisure facilities, with update and refurbishment work having recently finished at the Waterworld Leisure and Activity Centre in Wrexham.

But did you know that a number of dual-use sites at Wrexham schools have also seen improvement?

The improvements are part of £2.7million worth of investment made by Wrexham Council and Freedom Leisure into all four leisure facilities and new 3G pitches across the county borough.


Cllr Paul Rogers, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti-Poverty, with responsibility for Leisure, visited dual use facilities at Ysgol Clywedog, Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Rhosnesni High School, Ysgol Rhiwabon and Darland High School to view the completed works.

The works include energy saving improvements through new pool covers and filters, new energy-efficient lighting, redecoration across the five sites and the installation of a brand new 3G pitch.

Cllr Rogers said: “The capital improvements at Waterworld, Gwyn Evans, Chirk and Queensway Leisure and Activity Centres have, quite rightly, been well-publicised of late.

“But members of the public should also know that improved facilities are also available at dual-use sites at schools such as Clywedog and Rhiwabon, along with Morgan Llwyd, Darland and Rhosnesni.

“During my visits, I had the chance to note how improvements at Ysgol Clywedog and Ysgol Rhiwabon had already been welcomed by service users.

“I’m sure that the new and improved dual use sites will be incredibly important amenities for surrounding residents.”
