Flintshire Connects centre in Holywell is officially opened

THE new Flintshire Connects centre in Holywell has been officially opened.

Flintshire Connects offers people in the Holywell area access to a range of public services under one roof.

Located in the historic and refurbished Old Town Hall Building it is a public sector hub on the High Street, bringing together the services of Flintshire County Council, North Wales Police, Deeside College, Job Centre Plus and Communities First.

Holywell Town Partnership has also supported the project by providing funding to improve the entrance and lobby area of the building where there is visitor information.

The Centre is open six days a week, including Saturday mornings, and local organisations will also be able to use it for meetings and to raise awareness of local events.

Cllr Billy Mullin, cabinet member for corporate management at Flintshire County Council, said: “This is a new modern facility that will improve the way services are delivered to the residents of the town. We also hope the new centre will also boost the regeneration and vibrancy of Holywell town centre.”

Plans are currently being jointly developed by the county council with partner organisations to open Flintshire Connects Centres at Flint, Connah’s Quay, Buckley, Mold and Saltney.
