Why are we waiting?

08.28.09 | Comment?

Mmm, I’m still waiting for the West Lancashire swimming usage figures we asked for. I’m after the figures April-June ’09 period, the quarter following the introduction of free swimming for under 16s in most areas, but not Conservative-controlled West Lancashire.

As it happens, I took my kids swimming in Kirkby (in Knowsley borough) a couple of weeks ago.  It was free for them. The pool was really full.

Last week, I rode up with the kids to Skelmersdale and dropped the older one off at a mate’s house to goat about for a bit.  As it was closer, and as I’m not poor, I took the younger one swimming at Nye Bevan pool.  The pool was nearly empty.

I’m interested to see those figures.
