Is it just me, or is the water temperature at the Levenshulme swimming baths lower since the showers and toilets were fixed? My youngster was turning purple after ten minutes and I had to whisk him out pronto.
Anyway, it reminded me that the Friends of Levenshulme are keeping up the pressure on the Council to improve facilities there (maybe that includes fixing the thermostat?!) Here's the info:
After a lovely summer break it is time for the Levy Baths Protest! Your one opportunity to make a substantial difference to the condition of Levy Baths is this Saturday 5th September, at 2 p.m outside Levy Baths. Wear your swimming gear! (This is not compulsory, just bring a towel, or a bath toy if possible).
Friends of Levenshulme

I've had an email from Emily about outdoor gyms...
I've recently come across a company called 'the great outdoor gym company'. They create free outdoor gyms in parks for residents to use wthout having to pay the expensive gym membership fees. They are amazing (and more importantly very robust for all our naughty vandals). They would be such a good resource for our parks in Levenshulme. Sadly it seems its just the southern councils that have invested in them.
But with the government's new proposals to get the nation fit, surely there is funding available to get our local parks fitted with these amazing gyms?? Lets hope so, a friendly email to EastAreaParks@manchester.gov.uk might help.
Well, there's certainly one over the border in Shaw Heath, and I was chatting to a Levenshulme chap who looks after the parks in Stockport and he said it's still working, give or take the odd wobbly bolt, so perhaps we could get one round here. Where should it go?
