We are a group of volunteers who, worked together with Wrexham Council, set up this Charitable Company in order to develop the Canolfan Ceiriog Centre after the demolition of our old Community Hall.
We have raised almost £1,000,000 to build the new Community Centre with badminton hall, showers for team games, meeting rooms, kitchens etc. All age groups from the Community use the Centre from newborn babies at the toddler group right through to the elderly at the day centre, tea dances and whist drives.
As stated in our charitable status our aims are to:
‘To promote for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Community Councils of Llansantffraid Glyn Ceiriog, Ceiriog Uchaf and Glyntrain and the surrounding area the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals who have such need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disablement, financial hardship or social and economic circumstances or for the public at large in the interests of social welfare and with the object of improving the condition of life of the said inhabitants’ We hold regular events and activities to engage every sector of the community in order to enrich their lives and give opportunities which they would not otherwise have.
To provide on a not for profit basis a suite of recreation and leisure facilities for all age groups and abilities, whatever their social and economic background, in the interests of social welfare and improving the quality of life for the inhabitants of the Ceiriog Valley and surrounding area.
Canolfan Ceiriog Centre CYF is a sustainable, efficiently run, social enterprise, valued highly by the inhabitants of the Ceiriog Valley, attracting support and patronage from a wide spectrum of residents and visitors and providing an excellent, high quality suite of services and activities.
