K and I have seen some wonderful news to cheer us up during these cold winter months! We’re getting our new swimming baths at last! Hurrah! And even better, they are going to be built just a ten minute walk away from where we live!
Of course there have been plenty of objections about its siting but luckily this proposed siting has been passed. The new swimming baths is to be placed where the tennis courts are currently in our local park. Its an ideal spot to be honest as it will then be incorporated into the area which houses the bowling green and the crazy golf. The tennis courts don’t get used much so I am not sure what the plans are regarding the provision of tennis facilities.
We are over the moon! Honestly we were going to get a new swimming pool ages ago way back when we governing our own local area and had our own mayor, town hall, etc. Then we were ‘swallowed up’ into the greater ‘Calderdale’ Authority and H received the new swimming pool instead of us whilst we had to continue with our old Victorian building which became over the years too hard to maintain. Its been a bone of contention every since by the residents of this little town!
So practically a stones throw away! We can’t wait to go swimming again so this is excellent news!
