Given this seems such a stupid way to save money I also wonder if the council are not pulling a trick. Come up with the worst thing that they can think of when it comes to leisure facilities. There is a campaign, they relent but still have to save money so cut services elsewhere. Everyone feels they have "won" as they leisure centre is saved but the council still get to make their cuts elsewhere. Everyone feels bad about the new cuts but at least they saved the leisure centre.
Totally understand and thank you for replying. What they did was agree reduced hours for 3 years but that was less than a year ago so totally unfair to commit then pull back. It's a very busy centre and vital to lots of groups including special needs groups who use it a lot (has a lift, zero entry pool etc). The council will always make cuts but this one cant be allowed to progress.

Signed up! Perhaps some of these councils could preferably save money by getting rid of some of the overpaid, incompetent executives that seem to prevail!

They want this one to close so that one 15 mins along the road (newer) will be busier but the newer one isnt a leisure pool at all. We train there too and its lovely but very different, doesnt have a car park and isnt very disabled friendly to say the least. Not sure what they would do with it after that. The land it's on isnt probably ideal for housing but who knows.

Signed and forwarded to friends. We live in Fife and my son takes our grandchildren there every weekend. Fife council are the pits. They think nothing of spending in excess of 2 million on a new centre for their transport services but are unable to fix pot holes in the road.
Don't get me started on the destruction of villages by allowing building on green sites.

Thank you so much. We love the Beacon it's got a buzz about it that still feels personal unlike the fancy new centres which are lovely but dont quite feel the same. We spend on average 10 hours a week there between training for them, junior gym and land training. It's always buzzing with folk pottering around.
