ALL Freedom Leisure operated facilities in Wrexham have now closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It follows the announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Friday, requiring all gyms and leisure centres in the UK to close until further notice to help combat the virus pandemic.

In a statement via their website, a spokesman for Freedom Leisure, who run Waterworld, Gwyn Evans, Queensway and Chirk, said: “It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform our loyal and supportive customers that your leisure centre will now be closed for the foreseeable future.

“If you are a member, your direct debit payment will be suspended and no further payments will be taken. 

“More information on your membership will be available soon.

“Please bear with us, more information will be available in the next few days and we thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.

“We look forward to welcoming you back to your leisure centres in the not too distant future.

“Thank you for your continued support. 

“We’re a not-for-profit leisure trust, everything we make in surpluses is reinvested back into improving your facilities for you and your local community - and we couldn’t do that without you and your continued loyalty.”
