Summerfields has upped its game

I HOPE you will allow me to put on record my thanks to Freedom Leisure for the improvements and renovations it has made at Summerfields on Bohemia Road.

Before the General Election I had been lobbying Hastings Borough Council over the disgusting state of the poolside changing and shower rooms. And during the election campaign itself, I inadvertently gave the chief executive a mouthful about the subject, at the Hastings Business Lunch.

It should be a basic expectation that in a society as relatively well-off as ours, and with the health needs that we have, municipal sports facilities should be of a decent standard.

But credit where credit’s due. I went to play squash there the other night and things are much much better.

Well done to all responsible.
