The driving philosophy of lovelevenshulme is to be positive about the place we live in. Helen and myself decided that we would not write anything negative. So if you want this to remain a purely positive blog then please look away now!!
Levenshulme Swimming Pool and Arcadia Leisure Centre are being cut by Manchester City Council. My family and I are regular users of the swimming pool and the kids love it so obviously I am a little disappointed.
Please read the following from Friends of Levenshulme -
This news will have the most awful repercussions for our community and we will have to work together to prevent this from going ahead. We can only make a difference, together. Meet on Friday at 5 p.m. at Levenshulme Inspire in the cafe area to discuss a plan of action. Meanwhile, urgently invite your contacts to the Facebook group 'Fight for Levenshulme Baths' to keep up to date and show support.
The Arcadia is the most fantastic community resource where Levenshulmers of all ages come together to rollerskate. The facility urgently requires a few repairs to the roof which has leaked since it was installed. It also requires a cafe area as there is currently no space to sit or for children to pick up a cheap snack. The Arcadia will be applying for planning permission to add some space to the building to accommodate a much needed cafe area.
1 Minute of your time required! Please reply to this message saying that you support the repairs and planning permission that our very own Arcadia requires urgently.
