In at the Deep End

Another damning report landed at the door of Lincolnshire County Council this week.

The report, commissioned by Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, highlights a shortage of swimming pools across the county.

I suppose we should be thankful that we have access to a public pool on our doorsteps - but I have to say, the Deepings Leisure Centre, is well past its sell-by date.

The pool and centre is the responsibility of South Kesteven District Council but it's actually run by a private company.

I believe it would be much better in the hands of a local management committee run by local people, accountable to rate-payers!
