Flintshire Connects Connah’s Quay was officially opened by Leader of the Council, Councillor Aaron Shotton in a ceremony on Monday 14 July. Local councillors, community leaders and guests turned out to see the ribbon cut at the official opening of the third in a series of council customer service centres. Flintshire Connects, the council’s face-to-face customer contact programme has had unprecedented success in Holywell and Flint giving local residents access to information and key County Council services such as housing, Streetscene, welfare benefits and advice, Blue Badges, Concessionary Travel and Council Tax. The new centre located on Wepre Drive within Connah’s Quay Library and Learning Centre and a new Heritage Display which showcases historical information from the local area. Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said: “The Council is committed to offering exceptional customer service and the people of Connah’s Quay and the surrounding area will be next to benefit from the Flintshire Connects programme. I’m delighted to open the new building bringing Council services, the Library and the Heritage display all under one roof giving people access to joined-up services and cultural history. “The new Heritage Display will provide the opportunity for all generations to learn about the area’s proud industrial past in a modern and interactive exhibition.” The formal ceremony was followed by an open afternoon of activities for local schoolchildren and the public to enjoy the library and the new exhibition, which captured local memories by scanning residents’ documents for future display. Visitors also made use of the usual facilities delivered in the centre such as paying council bills, enquiring about council services, joining the library, using the computers free of charge and taking advantage of free WiFi.
