Keeping people fit and healthy: investment in Swimming Pools
The government has announced today new investment of £20 million in swimming pools and leisure facilities across England, helping them to stay afloat amidst rising energy costs - ensuring constituents across England stay fit and healthy.
- Operating costs of swimming pools and leisure facilities, alongside general inflationary pressure, have increased considerably over recent months, placing swimming pools and leisure facilities at risk of closure or significant service reduction.
- That is why we have launched the Swimming Pool Support Fund, with swimming pools and leisure facilities across England set to receive a share of £20 million Government funding.
- This will help people across the country to stay fit and healthy, contributing to our aim to cut obesity rates and cut waiting lists.
