I SEE that Fenland District Council is looking to make �2million worth of savings from its budget.
It is no coincidence that Fenland's three leisure centres; the Hudson, the George Campbell, and the Manor, are together subsidised to the tune of more than �2 million each year.
If Fenland Council wants to save �2million a year I can see no reason why these three loss-making leisure centres cannot be sold-off to private leisure companies.
A private leisure business, using strict financial controls, would be able to turn our three loss-making leisure centres into profit-making businesses for the benefit of everyone.
You may also want to watch:
For far too long, hard-pressed council tax-payers, have subsidised the users of our three leisures centres. It is time that users pay the full market rate for their activities.
So Fenland Council: sell-off the leisure centres as soon as possible.
