Wirral’s ConDem Collaboration backtracks on free swimming

22nd August 2010    

 

Liscard Labour Cllr Darren Dodd: “Today’s announcement that swimming will remain free for children and pensioners is fantastic news and will be welcomed by the thousands of people who regularly take advantage of the scheme."

 Wirral’s Tory led Council (propped up with the collaboration of the Liberals who have now cuddled up to the Tories after losing five Wirral Council seats tothem in May’s elections) now seems set to retreat ignominiously in the face of the peninsula-wide campaign, led by Liscard’s newest Councillor – Labour’s Darren Dodd.     

Previously the ‘ConDem’ Wirral Cabinet agreed only to keep Labour’s free swimming scheme until September, after which it looked as though pensioners and children would only be able to swim if they stumped up.  We cannot be sure until the Cabinet meeting on 26th August, but it now looks as though the Council will be forced to back down, blushing with shame,  following Darren’s highly successful campaign, including his on-line petition.

Supporting the Allandale

5th March 2010 

Wait for more news of the Allandale in the next day or so.  Thanks to excellent local management, and new income from community based fundraising activities,  the pressures are already beginning to ease – but the Club will only be safe it the fund raising activities such as those listed below are fully supported. 

This a reminder of the events we advertised for the Allandale Youth Club on 22nd February 2010    

On that date we wrote:       

Local football club to use the Allandale?Adrian called into the Allandale Youth Club today to let the manager of a local football team take a look around and meet the staff.  Let’s hope the team will start using the club’s excellent indoors facilities for training.          

After spending some time sorting out the details of forthcoming fund raising events he has organised Adrian went on to the ‘Five Bars Rest’ to discuss with Landlord Tommy Jones the details of the Family Fun Day he is organising to raise Allandale funds.
