Too cool to enjoy ‘fabulous’ pool

EDITOR - RE Meridian Leisure Centre, Louth. It is such a shame that this fabulous facility is spoilt by the uncomfortably low temperature of the 25-metre swimming pool.

It also comes as no surprise that East Lindsey District Council is offering the over 60s FREE swimming for the month of October.

The point has almost been reached where, after a dip, a quick sprint to the sauna is the only way to get the blood circulating again!

We are all aware of the high energy costs (particularly for heating water) and the council’s need to save money, however a rise of two to three degrees in the pool temperature could dramatically raise attendance permanently thus adding to the coffers - not diminishing them.
