As the campaign runs on, there is a greater need both to keep the issues in the public eye and to spread the workload so as not to wear out those of us who have been working hard from the start of the campaign.
We need help with little things which when added all together make a great deal of work if left to just a couple of folk. These are things like photocopying, handing out leaflets, looking after our stall for 30 mins when we have an event, making banners and talking to Councillors.
So, come down to the meetings currently held every Monday at the Lord Roberts pub in Hockley at 6.30pm (fully accessible and good beer) to find out what you can do to help Save Victoria Baths.
You can also support the campaign to save Victoria Leisure Centre by:
– Keep using the facitilies at the Leisure Centre >
– Join the campaign mailing list >
– Write to Nottingham City Council >
– Talk to your councillors >

– Spread the word >
KEEP USING THE FACILITIES AT THE LEISURE CENTRE
It was mentioned by Councillors during the Executive Board meeting on Tuesday 18 March that the Leisure Centre is still being underused. In this crucial next nine months of the consultations, it is really important to get as many people as possible to go and use the centre, to show how much they want it to stay there.
Please see the website below for the opening times, a list of facilities and prices. If you have not used the Turkish baths (similar to a steam room and sauna) before, then you really should! Or try swimming in the 33m Gala Pool, book a badminton court or give the gym a go. If you are organising a children’s party, an event, conference or anything else, please consider using the Leisure Centre as a venue. The Sports Hall is a very impressive space.
Please make it your own personal mission to use the centre and tell as many other people as possible to use it regularly over the next nine months. An increase in user numbers will really make a difference!
WRITE TO NOTTINGHAM CITY COUNCIL
Please continue to write to your councillors expressing your views on how the promised £5-7 million should best be invested for the east of the city. Below are the addresses of the three key people involved in the proposal to write letters or emails to. You can also download the list of all of the members of the council’s Executive Board and contact them all.
