Athletes' hope for Cwmbran Stadium future

Council-run leisure facilities in Torfaen have been handed over to a not-for-profit trust in an effort to create a more efficient service.

Pontypool Ski Slope, Cwmbran Stadium and Fairwater Leisure Centre are all affected.

The council will still fund them but against a background of budget cuts of up to 5% a year.

The chair of Torfaen Leisure Trust said services would be run more commercially with sales and marketing emphasised.

Olympic silver medallist Jamie Baulch and European champion hurdler Rhys Williams both say Cwmbran stadium is well known to athletes.
