St James Pool, Lynn
St James Pool, Lynn

As the Lynn swimming pool is desperately overcrowded and beginning to show its age one wonders why the borough council didn’t build a new swimming pool at Lynnsport, instead of the tennis courts for tennis, which is a minority sport.

A swimming pool would have raised far more revenue for the poor old council tax payer and swimming should be taught in all schools as a vital safety measure.
