Save Silverdale School Pool: Sign The Petition!

Children and parents at Silverdale Primary Academy recently learned of the shocking closure of the Silverdale Primary swimming pool.  Headteacher Mr Morris wrote to parents on the 17 October citing rising energy bills and maintenance costs: “Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have reached a point where we must make the heart-wrenching decision to commence the necessary process to permanently close the swimming pool.” 


Helena Dollimore, Labour’s MP candidate for Hastings and Rye, met with parents and children concerned about the loss of a vital service the pool provides for local children.  Helena said: “The closure of Silverdale School pool is such a loss for children. Learning to swim can't become an unaffordable luxury in a coastal community like ours.


It is something every child should have access to.  When Rye Pool closed its doors last Autumn in response to rising energy bills, we launched a campaign with the local community and saved the pool from closing.


That is why I am working with local parents to launch this petition to show the strength of feeling in our community, and urging our Conservative MP to look at how the Government can help schools like Silverdale with spiralling pool energy costs. I urge all local families and residents to sign it to show their support.
