MP congratulates Plas Madoc Leisure Centre on their shortlisting for Social Business Wales awards

Today (31/08/18) Susan Elan Jones MP called in to Plas Madoc Leisure Centre to congratulate them on their shortlisting for the Social Business Wales awards.

The awards will take place at the City Hall in Cardiff on 26 September, where Plas Madoc will be competing to be Wales social enterprise of the year.

The community-run leisure centre was saved from closure in 2014 following a high profile local campaign.

Following her visit, the Clwyd South MP said: “I am delighted to hear the fantastic news that Plas Madoc has been shortlisted for this prestigious award. The Centre is a tremendous asset to the community and the work being undertaken to improve its facilities is very impressive. It is right that we celebrate and encourage excellence within the social business sector in Wales. I recently asked Wales Office Ministers in Parliament what more could be done to support social enterprises as part of the North Wales Growth Deal. It’s vital that we support community-run enterprises like Plas Madoc Leisure Centre; they are the lifeblood of our local communities”.
