Being the main carer for a young child can be demanding and brings with it challenges to carve out time for oneself to which  many parents can relate. With this in mind and the clear link between mental health and physical exercise, it is with disbelief that a decision has been made to close the crêche at Westcroft Leisure Centre due to its lack of use and the financial implications of such. We, the undersigned, would recognise that such a valuable service does not exist for financial gain in itself and that as a community commodity, the leisure centre managed by Everyone Active should either reconsider it's stance, provide alternative services and/or consult with its users to decide a satisfactory outcome for all. In closing the crèche, the leisure centre is cutting a service which allows well needed respite and access to leisure services to a large number of the community. This short sighted act goes against the Sutton borough's vision of encouraging a, physically and mentally, healthy community which in turn, will lead to strain on other services provided by the council. By signing this, we ask that the decision be revoked especially given that many users have signed up to this particular centre, paid membership in advance on the proviso that there is a working crèche in situ.
