Demolition of Wrexham’s former fire station is well underway to make way for a new £1.7 million Cats Protection adoption centre.
In June 2017 Wrexham.com reported that the charity were looking to relocate from their current centre on Maderia Hill to the former fire station on Bradley Road. The plans had been put forward due to the charity “outgrowing” its current home in Wrexham as it looks to boost the number of local cats and kittens it can help to around 500 a year, with formal approval for demolition give just over a year ago.
A new single storey property will built on the site, as pictured below. Permission was also been granted for the display of the new Cats Protection signage on the site.
It was hoped the new centre would be operational in the spring, with an extra two jobs created along with opportunities for more than 40 volunteers.
Back in June 2016 we had a look in the then recently closed fire station (full pictures here) and we have found a few more images from that day including the old firemans pole!
