Wrexham community groups score support from Pave Aways

Pave Aways has helped two community groups build for the future by supporting initiatives to improve their facilities.

We have sponsored the materials for new dugouts at Queens Park Football Club and are carrying out essential roof repairs to The Venture children’s centre in Caia Park.

This is part of our community benefit scheme as part of the £1.6m contract we are carrying out to reroof properties for Wrexham County Borough Council.

We stepped in to offer help to Queens Park after hearing about its battle to remain in the Welsh National League.

Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We discovered that the volunteers had already constructed two new dugouts as part of the criteria to get funding released from the Welsh Football Association so we donated the cost of the materials to the club.

“The Venture is a brilliant facility close to where we are working and does a great job providing free play provision to children from the wider Wrexham community so we were keen to work with them and carrying out these essential roof repairs in order to protect the future of the building.

“As a business, we firmly believe in giving back something to the communities where we live and work so are only too pleased to be able to support two great local organisations.”

Queen’s Park Secretary Dave Evans said without the support of Pave Aways’ it would not have been able to source the materials or fund the work that needed to be carried out.

He said: “The money provided enabled us to build the dugouts and secure them correctly. This work has had a huge impact on the local community as the previous dugouts were open and provided shelter for people to sit and drink alcohol and take drugs.

“We would often turn up on match day and have to clear the area of all sorts of paraphernalia. Since the new dugouts have been erected we have been able to secure the front with a solid lockable gate.”
