LESSON FOR OUR LEISURE CENTRES?

In my opinion, privatising the Health & Leisure Centres, rather than allowing the Council staff to continue doing so (as they have successfully for 40 years), makes it more likely they will fail and close.

Here is news from nearby Swindon of a leisure centre that was put in private hands by the Council there. Interesting to note that there is no intention to open it, run by the Council. Once these vital facilities are put into private hands and then close… that's the end.

New Forest Conservatives have never asked the public whether they want to see our Health & Leisure Centres put in the hands of private operators. If they did, I think that most people would say keep them as a Council asset.
