Poulton-le-Fylde Labour started this petition to Wyre Councillors

Covid restrictions have been tough for local leisure centres, in Wyre as much as anywhere. While the Government has promised help, it hasn't said when or how that will be available.

These centres provide swimming lessons for local children and offer affordable fitness to everyone who can't shell out for a private gym membership. Poulton also includes the popular spa on the Breck.

Wyre Council has been asked to find extra funding to get the borough's four leisure centres open again. Instead, they've decided to fund just two of them. They're spending £340,000 on the centres at Garstang and Thornton, but won't find the £28,000 needed for Poulton and Fleetwood. Instead of keeping the Fleetwood and Poulton centres open, they're spending £30,000 on consultants!  

This bizarre decision has been called-in so all councillors can vote on it. We want to tell them how much we value local services, and how we'd prefer our money to be spent on our health and wellbeing - not on fatcat consultants.

Local councillor Holly Swales says: "I have had lots of correspondence on the reopening of Poulton and Fleetwood leisure centres and swimming pool. They are so valuable, serving everyone in the Wyre communities for the benefit of health and wellbeing. If ever there be an emergency to use emergency funds, it would be now." 

Sign today to help Holly and her fellow Labour councillors persuade Wyre Council to think again and ensure all our leisure facilities reopen.
