An open meeting is to take place in Brymbo on Monday 12th November to discuss proposals to construct a skatepark for the children and young people of the community.
The meeting which will take place at the Miners Arms, High Street commences 7.30pm and will give local residents a chance to discuss their views on the proposal.
A range of issues will be discussed including funding for the project and also potential sites for the facility.
A community group called Brymbo Play Association has been formed to take the project forward. Over the last two months they have raised over £3000 towards the project which they hope to use as match funding towards grant applications.
County Councillor Paul Rogers who is backing the scheme is hoping local residents with an interest in the project attend the meeting on Monday.
He said “The open meeting on Monday will be an opportunity for local residents to have their say on the proposed skatepark”
“I want this to be an open process with all issues and options on the table”
“Residents are working extremely hard to fundraise and therefore it is important that we have the support of the people of Brymbo and therefore hope local residents with an interest make every effort to attend”
“For years there has been a lack of investment in improved facilities for children and young people in Brymbo compared to neighbouring communities and therefore I am fully behind plans for a new play facility”
Back in July we wrote about fundraising efforts by the group.
