Wrexham leisure centre saved from closure by local volunteers

A Wrexham leisure centre has been reopened after volunteers stepped in to save it from the bulldozers.

Plas Madoc Leisure Centre was earmarked for demolition when the council agreed to shut it in April, saying it could not afford to update the facilities.

But residents vowed to pitch in and take it on.

After setting up a trust to run the centre in Acrefair, they set about overhauling facilities ready for Saturday's official reopening of the new-look Splash Magic.
