RCT County Borough Council propose to close Aberdare Oasis Health Suite. The suite comprises of a small Gym, Sauna, Steam Room, Jacuzzi and rest room.
The council propose to turn this small suite in to a larger Gym by doing away with its current facilities and utilising the current snooker room, thus removing this facility also. The Oasis Health Suite is used by a cross section of people who frequent the facilities from different valleys as well as from Cardiff.
Many older people who enjoy the health benefits of this small, but unique Oasis, use this Health Suite. Many of its patrons are ex-miners, Phurnacite workers and heavy industry workers who helped create and sustain this facility for many decades that have now succumbed to many conditions such as, bronchial diseases arthritis, skin disorders, and circulation problems etc. These health problems are eased and improved by using the Sauna, Steam Room, and Jacuzzi. The benefits are medically proven to enhance health and wellbeing.
There are more than 10 public Gym in operation between Mountain Ash and Hirwaun; there is no need to make a bigger gym at the expense of this vital part of health and wellbeing for the people of RCT. This Petition asks that the RCTCBC reconsider its decision to close the Aberdare Oasis Health Suite by reason that the current benefits to its constituent outweigh any reason for its closure.
We the undersigned, call on the leaders of RCT County Borough Council, to withdraw its plans to close the Aberdare Oasis Health Suite.
We believe that everyone has a right to the health and wellbeing benefits associated with the Oasis Health Suite.
