We lost


photoFor the last two weeks I have been consumed by trying to save our local swimming pool. Tonight planning was granted to demolish a perfectly good pool in favour of ANOTHER supermarket. I am gutted :  (  If anyone out there knows anyone or knows anything we could do to save this pool at the 11th hour please contact me. It is appalling that a perfectly good asset should just be bulldozed. See here for the history of the fight.

It is criminal hens teeth - I feel so angry and miserable over our pool. It'll be a sad day when the bulldozers arrive. Thanks for dropping by : ) x

Im so with you on this, Im fed up of supermarkets taking over everything, we have that many and theres still more opening up. Is your local press no good ? or a local 'celebrity ' or M.P ?...aaaaggghhh I feel for you !
I think most of these things are done deals as well before the public even get wind of it.

Thanks Whistle and Stitch for taking time to comment and commiserate. We did try and get all sorts of folk involved but we had very little time. It looks like it might have been a done deal so we are still campaigning even though it looks a little bit useless. In my head I know we have lost but in my heart I just can't give up on such a great pool x
