The Save TCP committee had organized a private bid to take over and run the pool and fitness centre, and this would have cost the council nothing, but at the last council meeting in December, the nine Labour councillors acting unanimously like a well-drilled Politburo, voted to reject the proposal.
Risinghurst voters can reflect that they made this situation worse by electing one more Labour councillor in the by-election a few months ago. I wonder why - do they want their daughters treated like the girls in Labour-run Rotherham?
Save TCP committee says:-
It's still possible to keep the Pools (and gym, and sauna & steam room) alive and flourishing in Temple Cowley; but the community-interest community needs OUR help. This could be the start of the Council listening to 'ordinary people' in other parts of Oxford too…(think the Barton Development or Port Meadow).
