A COMMUNITY centre could be saved from closure if it is taken over by a school.

Ysgol Tanyfron, on Tanyfron Road, is in talks with Wrexham Council to take over the running of Tanyfron Community Centre.

Brymbo councillor Paul Rogers is supporting the proposal.

Cllr Rogers and school headteacher Nick Hankin have met with council officers to progress the idea.

At a meeting of Brymbo Community Council, Cllr Rogers said discussions were positive and meetings between groups and the school were taking place to see how they could be accommodated if the building was converted for school use.

The centre is used by the school on a regular basis and other users include a lunch club and the Brymbo Choir.

The meeting heard concerns from a member of the public that parking nearby would get worse if the centre and car park closed to the community.

But Cllr Rogers said he was committed to ensuring the centre remains open.

Last September Wrexham Council gave an ultimatum to community councils to take on the running costs of facilities such as community centres – or face losing them.

Some centres have not had a reprieve and are at risk of closing from next month.
