As a result of the Budget Saving Options agreed at the recent City Council meeting there are a number of facilities whose budgets have been reduced and as a result we need to review the opening hours at those specific sites to meet the budget available. These include Austin Rawlinson Sports Centre, Park Road Sports Centre & Liverpool Tennis Centre. Facility Managers have assessed usage patterns at those respective sites the new opening hours will take effect from Monday 14th April. School usage and regular user group activities will not be affected by the new proposals.
They have also agreed to close New Hall baths in Fazakerley, only 12 months after refurbishing them.
Contrast this with the new pool opening this month in Picton.
Guess who represents Picton? Yup, Council leader Warren Bradley and former Council leader Mike Storey. (Actually they represent Wavertree ward, what I think I meant to say was that Picton Pool is in their Wavertree ward).
