You know it is election time when political parties try and take the claim for any good news story coming out in the media. This time it is the Kidsgrove Labour Party making the laughable claim that they got the funding for Kidsgrove Swimming Pool repairs.
What has been noticed is how non of our Kidsgrove Labour Party wanted to know when Kidsgrove Swimming Pool was closed. They were very quick to blame Newcastle Borough Council and Staffordshire County Council, with many articles appearing in the local media to this extent as well.
What we can factually report is that Kidsgrove Swimming Pool should re-open in July this year after Newcastle Borough Council and Clough Hall School agreed on funding the repairs, which is believed to be around the £100,000 mark.
This is great news for Kidsgove that the main swimming pool is going to be back in use in Kidsgrove, something that was always going to happen despite the rumours which some people were spread in the town. A project like this takes time as the damage needs to be assessed and plans put in place to identify what repairs are required and how they will be funded.
But as it seems that everyone wants to claim to getting the pool developed .... thanks to a Whitehill Online campaign we have helped secure the repairs to Kidsgrove Swimming Pool.
