Thanks everyone, we have had more than 2,000 signatures on the paper and online petitions and will be making our case to the Bradford Council on 12 July 2011. Please continue to support the pool - write to your councilor, the sports and leisure department, the local paper. Keep up the pressure and keep the pool open!
Bradford MD Council are cutting the opening hours at Bingley Pool from 11 April, with no consultation with users and very little notice.
The new opening hours will mean only 23 hours of public swimming per week, with many of these sessions being restricted to particular groups.
The swimming pool will be closed to the public on MONDAYS and SATURDAYS.
All weekday early morning swims have been cut, along with a reduction in lunchtime swims and there will be no Fun Splash session.
The gym has also had it's hours restricted with early morning access only on a Sunday.
Users are concerned that this is a step towards total closure of the facility.
We the undersigned oppose the cuts to the public swimming and gym sessions at Bingley Pool.
We want Bradford Metroplitan District Council to carry out a full and proper public consultation regarding any changes to public provision at Bingley Pool, and to safeguard the future of Bingley Pool.
The Save Bingley Pool petition to Bradford Metropolitan District Council was written by Lucy Bannister and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
