Wilton Primary School in Hawick has had a special hydrotherapy swimming pool for the use of both additional needs and mainstream children from Wilton School, other schools within the town and children from across the Scottish Borders for the past 36 years.
The pool was recently upgraded but was closed in October for administrative reasons relating to Health and Safety. The pool has now been proposed for permanent closure by Scottish Borders Council. There is currently a consultation being carried out by Scottish Borders Council, and we need your support to keep the pool open.
For some children this is the only swimming pool they can access and their health is impacted by its closure. This is a unique facility that needs to be safeguarded for some of the most vulnerable children in our community.
We, the undersigned, call on Scottish Borders Council to keep Wilton Primary
School swimming pool open.
