ePetition details


We the undersigned petition the council to Make safe and re-open Millom Swimming Pool until such time that funds are in place to build a new facility

We, the community of Millom, have been short changed by our County Council. Our pool has been left to fall into a state of disrepair and now the plan is to demolish it without any public consultation.
50 years ago our community suffered the loss of at least one child per year through drowning in our dangerous waters.
Because of this our pool was built in huge part by the school children and their families so that lives would not be lost from drowning .
The National Curriculum states that 'All schools must provide swimming instruction in either key stage 1 or key stage 2'
The closure and planned demolition of our pool not only contravenes Cumbria County Council's responsibility on an educational level but will also put our children's lives at serious risk.
