Beaumaris leisure centre plan takes shape


Geraint Jones

THE campaign to safeguard Beaumaris leisure centre continues as residents prepare to take control.

Friends of Canolfan Beaumaris (FoCB) has appointed prospective directors for the social enterprise which they hope will run the centre from March 2013.

Prospective directors have come forward for Canolfan Hamdden Beaumaris a’r Cylch (Beaumaris and District Leisure Centre), and will apply for the company to be incorporated at Companies House.

Spokesman Roger Handy said: “While legally a company Canolfan Hamdden Beaumaris a’r Cylch will be very different to a typical commercial company in that its aims are to serve the community rather than make a profit.

“It will have no shareholders, the directors are unpaid and cannot benefit financially from the company’s activities and any profits/surplus has to be used to further the company’s aims or be donated to a charity with similar aims.

FoCB will then present a business plan to Anglesey Council, and will make grant applications to raise suficient funds to run the centre.

Residents will be able to join Canolfan Hamdden Beaumaris a’r Cylch and be eligible to attend and vote at general meetings.

Mr Handy said that more details about membership would be provided once the company is established.

FoCB will hold a public meeting at 7.30 pm on Wednesday, December 5 in the centre.

A Volunteers meeting will be heldin the centre at 6.30 pm Wednedsday December 12.
