Aura is excited to announce that work is currently underway to introduce a brand new 3G 7-a-side football pitch to Deeside Leisure Centre!
Work began on 6 January 2020 after Aura secured funding from one of Sport Wales’ ‘Place for Sport’ grants. This state of the art facility is scheduled to be completed and ready for spring 2020.
Across Wales, more than £1m worth of ‘Place for Sport’ grants have been shared among 118 sports clubs and organisations to help modernise, protect or create new sports facilities.
Lord Elis-Thomas, Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism said: “Whether it’s the hall you dance in or the pitch you play on, having the right sports facilities in place has a big impact on a person’s experience.”
Welcoming the news, Mike Welch, Aura’s Managing Director, said: “Aura feels passionately that there should be a place for sport for everyone. This funding will enable a greater number of local residents to enjoy the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity.”
Lee Breeze, Deeside Leisure Centre’s Development Officer, similarly expressed his excitement about the new facility, saying: “we are delighted to be able to add to our existing outdoor provision by securing grant funding from Sport Wales. We can’t wait for it to be open and look forward to working with national governing bodies and local clubs in developing grassroots sports across Flintshire.”
Demand is expected to be very high for the hire of the new 3G pitch; to express interest in booking the facility, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your preferred days and times.
