COMMENT - SOS for pool

Share this article

THE campaigners battling to keep Hindley Pool open have certainly done their bit to ensure the local community still has somewhere to swim without travelling into Wigan town centre.

They are now looking to try and organise activities and pool hire sessions during the hours in which Wigan Council and Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust can no longer afford to open the venue.

Two public meetings have been arranged for next week to discuss the future of the pool, and the community group’s hard work deserves to be supported.

The message is clear: Hindley Pool’s fate is in residents’ own hands.
