Letter to the Evening News
I AM writing you with huge disappointment about the decision to close
Leith Waterworld. I attended a full council meeting and watched in
disbelief how political agreement overcame rational and emotional
Many councillors showed understanding
of the value and uniqueness of Leith Waterworld in their replies to my
e-mails yet all of them apart from the Greens voted for its closure.
This is not what they were elected to do – to serve people.
down a well used amenity, a special place for whole families to be
together and spend quality time together, the only suitable pool for
babies, toddlers, primary school kids and disabled people, is working
against people, not for them.I can’t accept that Edinburgh will trade
this place for a little patch on a Royal Commonwealth pool hole. It is a
quick fix leading nowhere.
There are many much smaller towns in the UK able to sustain a leisure pool, how come the capital of Scotland can not?
Leith Waterworld should be an investment in kids, their health and happiness.
