Bridgwater Forward tried many ways to prevent the closure of our well loved Splash: petition, occupation, meetings. Help us now by using the sample letter here to get your message across to our Council that we are not happy with the building of yet another supermarket.
We are being asked to unite as a community in order to get what we think is best for our area. By sending the letter to Peter Smith for forwarding to SDC you will be helping to show how many people want a pool and leisure centre in the town, and not another supermarket.
What we need in Bridgwater is somewhere to go for leisure and to keep fit.
So many people miss Splash!

Splash has now gone, but its replacement must be right for the people of Bridgwater.
Chilton Trinity School has now been reprieved so the swimming pool will be back on the agenda. The site for our new pool is still in the wrong place.
A New Pool and Leisure Centre should be built on the Northgate site, which many of you voted for when visiting the consultation in the Town Hall
As well as serving the needs of local people, this will encourage tourism to the town and provide leisure facilities to encourage new businesses to come and stay in Bridgwater.
THIS IS WHY
CONTINUES TO ARGUE FOR
A TOWN CENTRE POOL
Our new pool should be part of a leisure centre to provide activities such as ten pin bowling, indoor sport area for training purposes, built on the Northgate site.
What can residents do to make their voices heard?

Dear Councillor McGinty
Replacement Public Swimming Pool for Bridgwater
There is still much anger in the town regarding the demolition of Splash. There is money ring-fenced for a new pool and I think it should be in the town centre, on the Northgate site.
This site is accessible by all, whether on foot, cycle, bus or car. It is our money that is being spent and this is what we, the people, want.
LET’S SEE WHAT PEOPLE POWER CAN DO!
Please help us. We need thousands of letters - this is your last chance. We lost the Splash but it is not too late to get a new town centre pool.
