New child care service at centre.
A NEW child care service will be established to bring all the services offered by one council under one roof.
The play group at Plas Ffrancon Leisure Centre in Bethesda will be funded by the Flying Start scheme.
The scheme provides intensive and specialised services to meet the needs of all children up to the age of four in the most deprived areas of Gerlan and Ogwen in Bethesda.
Councillor Mair Rowlands, Gwynedd Council's Leisure Cabinet Member said: "By bringing services together, it enables us as a Council to ensure that services such as leisure centres can continue in our communities despite the financial challenges the Council is currently facing.
"Establishing a Flying Start play group at Plas Ffrancon Leisure Centre is a great example of how existing Council buildings can continue to be of use to the community in many different ways.
"This will be a great benefit to the centre."
