Running has grown 10 fold in the Millom Community over the last 2 years. Running is a vital player in health and well-being. Millom has an excellent reputation for involving a diverse range of people from the community from Children to the Retired. The towns runners formally meet twice a week; running the streets of Millom and Haverigg between 4 and 12K on average. In the darker months it would be safer for the community runners to train in a safe environment such as a running track alike other towns including Barrow. A track facility would benefit many groups in the community and not only the community runners. A facility could provide a safe zone for people with disabilities such as wheelchair users along with young budding cyclists looking to develop their bike skills safely. We recently lost our town swimming pool, a facility that should be available in every town or at least within reasonable distance. What about a Leisure Centre encompassing these vital health commodities?
