      Following the meeting in the Star, the word is that Splott pool will remain open and has funding until September. There is talk of developing a Hub on the site, but at present little substance to it.

      Realistically its still very uncertain times for the pool. The council meeting for budget funding is on :

      February 28 at 3:30pm
      City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff

      this will be the only clear confirmation of funding until September, but the big question is what happens after September?

      so its probably best to keep the petition open until we find out what happens after September deadline. any additional signatures welcome.

      thanks

      Its been a week since the petition was set up and we are on 500+ signatures! As you can imagine there has been plenty of party politics and point scoring going on.

      underneath this I do think that something positive may happen to Splott pool to secure its sustainability, iF its going to happen i imagine next week will be the week we will hear about it. If not then i don't think the future will be bright.

      So next week i'm going to take the petition to the relevant officers in the council and see if i can get some press interest, particularly from the comments section.

      500+ is more than we could have hoped for, if everybody who signed asked 1 person to also sign then we will be on a 1000+ which will just strengthen the petition further.

      thanks

    5. Poster protest

      it was good to see so many outside the pool today. I started to knock a few doors with some posters, it would be good if anyone in the STAR area [ or further afield!] could also print the poster at A3 [ black and white is fine] and put it in their window,

      it can take a while to download

      My grandchildren learnt to swim at splott pool and now take their children (my great grandchildren), they can't afford to go anywhere else and none of them have transport.

      My children & grandchildren use it regularly for lessons. None of the drive so would be able to easily attend elsewhere.
