Baths must be kept open

Waverley Road


The threat of the closure to Elland swimming baths need to be high on the priority list for the town.

If the building closes many school children are at risk of not having access to a swimming pool in order to learn important life saving skills.

It seems unfair that Elland baths missed out on being refurbished, which both Sowerby Bridge and Brighouse baths have seen recently.

The town is dying, and has been for years, so this cash injection is a great boost for Elland, but I believe the swimming baths are an essential part of the community for all ages and we need to do everything we can to keep it open.
