It makes every sense that money is invested in the sporting arena. Since loosing our swimming pool there are no facilities for the younger generation to learn to swim and living in a coastal area this not only makes no sense but is extremely dangerous. There is a high percentage of obesity and mental health issues within this area. Studies show that exercise is good in reducing weight and also helps alleviate stress and anxiety. If there was a centre within Millom people would be able to access all services and make full use of facilities. It would need to incorporate both swimming and leisure facilities perhaps incorporating services already offered by the Recreation Centre. Investing in such a venture would also brings jobs locally, both in the construction of the building and staffing the centre. This would also have an impact on bringing trade and tourism into the town, creating more work and regeneration of local amenities.
