Last week Rye News reported that Freedom Leisure would be closing Rye’s swimming pool for the winter due to the excessive costs incurred by rising inflation.
Helena Dollimore, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Hastings, said “I am horrified at the prospect of our community losing its swimming pool. People of all ages enjoy using it, and it is particularly important for local children who need somewhere safe to learn to swim. This vital public service is threatened because of this reckless Conservative government and its failure to deliver energy security, sound finances, and a fully costed energy support package for families, businesses, and community facilities.”
