Following an evaluation of the current situation regarding Covid-19, and having considered the views of our key partners, Aura has made the difficult decision to close our leisure centres and libraries effective from Friday, 20 March 2020.

This is not a decision that we ever anticipated making and, though taken with a heavy heart, it is one which puts the safety and well-being of our loyal and active customers first.

The following facilities will be closed until further notice:

Buckley Leisure Centre
Deeside Leisure Centre (including Deeside Library)
Jade Jones Pavilion Flint
Mold Leisure Centre

Flint High School (sports centre)
Hope Sports Centre
Saltney Sports Centre

Broughton Library
Buckley Library
Connah’s Quay Library
Flint Library
Holywell Library
Mobile Library
Mold Library

We are currently working through our existing bookings and will contact you regarding these in the near future. Our normal terms and conditions will not apply during the period of closure and we will not be collecting any Direct Debit payments during the period of closure. Any pre-paid memberships, for example, annual gym memberships, will be extended to compensate for the period of closure.

Please can we advise all customers to visit our website and to follow us on Twitter (aura_wales) and Facebook ( for further updates.

Remember, Aura Library Members can access free eBooks, eAudiobooks, eNewspapers, magazines and comics directly to their devices from home. You just need your Library membership number or it is free to join online for instant access.

Once it is safe to re-open our doors (subject to guidance) we look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy our services and activities. We know how valued leisure centres and libraries are to our local communities and they will be more important than ever once the current pandemic is over. We wish to thank all of our customers for their continued support. Please bear with us during this challenging period and remember that Aura is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving residents’ health and well-being.

Aura’s Customer Services Team can be contacted on 01352 702430 / 702438.

Take care everybody and keep yourself safe.
