Noth East Lincolnshire Council have announced their new plans for the local leisure centre, and one of their plans is the closure and possible demolition of Grimsby Swimming Pool, known locally as 'Scaffa Baffs'.
It is a well loved and well used amenity, and to close it would leave a lot of people without a decent place to go and swim, plus the other leisure centres are too far away for people without transport to go regularly.
We, the undersigned, are calling for North East Lincolnshire Council to leave Grimsby Swimming Pool open for continued use by the many people who use it regularly, as closing it would be detrimental to the people of Grimsby, Cleethorpes and surrounding areas who use the facility for swimming, swimming lessons, galas, gym and exercise classes.
While money is being put in to expand and update facilites at Grimsby Leisure Centre, it is too far away for those people who do not have transport to travel to on a regular basis, Grimsby Swimming Pool is a much loved and much used amenity, and we do not want to see its closure.
The Save Grimsby Swimming Pool (Scaffa Baffs) petition to North East Lincolnshire Council was written by Janine Tanner and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
