Final Decision on Viccy Baths Coming Up

I received the following message from the 'Save the Victoria Baths' campaign via Facebook.


This is the FINAL petition to try to stop Nottingham City Council from demolishing our beloved leisure centre! Please sign it ASAP if you have not done so already!

The Council will vote and make their final decision on the future of the leisure centre on Tuesday 7 April 2009 7pm in the Committee Room of the Council House. Please come along and make your view heard.

See the website for further details: ''

The campaign group are urging everyone to sign up to support option A which will keep the most of the original structure and provide the most facilities.

Personally I'm coming from a 'heritage' point of view because I believe that we have been too quick to bulldoze historical buildings and don't make nearly enough of the history we've got left. But of course there are the users of the centre who actually want their services to remain. A commenter on one of my previous posts pointed out that the Victoria Leisure Centre is one of the few places that offer badminton courts.

So have a look at the website and sign the petition. But do it quickly as the decision is being made at a Council meeting on April 7th.

I understand that this meeting is public so you may want to turn up in person...
