Where next?

To confirm:  Splashback is taking time out from the Olympics, to prepare our community bid.  We will be handing over our bid to the City of Edinburgh Council on Tuesday morning, in advance of the 7 August at 12 noon deadline.

Our campaign aim from the start, was to safeguard the future of Leith Waterworld and re-open the facility for the people of Edinburgh, and beyond.  We were open to how this might be done, and we now believe that we have a strong case for how the pool's future could be secured by the community, for the community.  That community is broad, and includes users, businesses, the voluntary sector, the social enterprise sector, lesiure operators and The City of Edinburgh Council. 

Please support our bid with messages and statements of support of why you think the reopening of Leith Waterworld is important, either personally or professionally. The Councillors will be reviewing our case during August, and all support we get adds momentum.  We will be collating the messages, stripping out the personal details and forwarding to the Councillors so they can review when they make the decision.

Thanks for all the support the campaign has received over the last 9 months - we're ready to give birth to something new!

  1. Best of luck! I remeber going to Leith Waterworld after school on a Friday (one week there, one week the flumes at the Commie) and am so sad kids don't have that anymore.
