Council is deaf

First published in News by

City of York Council must surely win the award for the most sports facilities, particularly swimming pools, to be shut down while still well used, much loved and in their prime.

Not only is the council really proud of this record, it is immensely proud of the amount of money they plough into new swimming facilities that don’t quite fulfil what their citizens presently enjoy.

Perhaps they are looking to win the “Deafest Ear Award” next.

Ruth Roberts, Elmfield Terrace, York.

That's right Ruth. They even managed to shut down the Huntington Athletics track when they should have been looking for a site for their new Community stadium. (Primarily a home for YCFC)
