DISABILITY equipment has been installed in a Wrexham village park using funds raised by a community committee.

Ponciau Park has been loved by generations and has finally received a well-overdue accessibility upgrade.

The Friends of Ponciau Park Committee has been chaired by Councillor Paul Pemberton for the past eight-years, organising various events and activities to raise funds and provide for residents.

But now the group is disbanding, Cllr Pemberton said they decided the remaining funds should be used to create a lasting legacy with a real community impact.

Together with Rhos Community Council, the committee installed accessible equipment in the park in the hope that the facility can give people pleasure for many years to come.

Cllr Pemberton said: "As a group we were all getting older and started to struggle due to the lack of interest.

"We decided for our lasting legacy to use the remaining money to fund inclusive equipment to really go out on a high."

The committee has also arranged one final event on Friday, February 16 at 7pm featuring the Declan Swans at the Hafod Colliery Club in Rhos.


Tickets are £10 and can be bought from the P&G Motors Garage or the Hafod Club. 

All proceeds going to the Seirian Richards Fund for a young child with Leukaemia.

The event has been rescheduled following its postponement last year, and will be the final one organised by the Ponciau Park Committee.
