WREXHAM's Queensway Community Building is under threat prompting residents to raise crucial funds.

An urgent plea has been issued to ensure the survival of the beloved Queensway Community Building, situated in Caia Park.

Despite financial stability over the years, those who use the building to positively impact the community now face the imminent threat of relocation due to the private landlord wanting to sell. 

Dianne Hughes, owner of Delta Academy of Dance, hosts her lessons inside the Queensway Complex, a cornerstone of creativity and inclusivity in the heart of Wrexham for the past 38-years.

The dance academy has been a thriving force for almost four decades, providing exceptional training to over 500 children and young adults every week.

In 2017, the academy made a bold decision to relocate to the current venue in Caia Park where they transformed an old garage into a warm and inclusive space.

The building houses the Delta studios, the Happy Hedgehog Café and Queensway Craft and Textiles shop, which are all loved by local residents.

The space has evolved into a crucial lifeline for the community, a sanctuary where people find solace, support, and a sense of belonging. 

A GoFundMe page has now been set up in a bid to raise £250,000 to purchase the building. 

The Queensway Community Building is a refuge for those affected by dementia and their carers holding twice monthly Dementia dinners/activities, a nurturing ground for thriving craft and friendship groups, a platform for local talent to shine, and a provider of essential work experience for vulnerable groups.


They also host vital community social events and actively support local initiatives.

A recent burglary brought the community’s outpouring of support to the forefront, showcasing the profound impact the space has on people’s lives. 

Wrexham residents are now being encouraged to show their support which would allow those involved to purchase the building themselves and continue making a positive impact.

The fundraising page states: "Please consider contributing to our fundraising efforts and help us keep the doors of the Queensway Community Building wide open. Together, we can safeguard this vibrant hub, ensuring it remains a pillar of hope and positivity for years to come."
