I'm not sure of the viewing figures for Rossendale online but I'll guess at less than the number of children who are obese in the valley.

Bitter, you bet. How long will the feelgood factor last? Until the next happy meal? Those that need inspiration will now be looking for opportunities to swim / run / throw / ride etc. This has been an opportunity missed by the narrow minded buffoons on the Council.

I won't mention the public consultation which overwhelmingly wanted the pool.

Torn and twisted, no; just expressing an opinion - which used to be the purpose of the board

'Forever' was the reply.






As long as people know the correct way to hang it I'll be happy.....

Spot on!
The convention is that the mast is on the left, rotate 90 deg. clockwise for a horizontal pole

Nothing wrong with a bit of chauvinism now and then.
