Pool Plan Takes Shape?

The Hunts Post St Neots - 22/12/2010

So SNSPT may get £1.75 million for the sale of the old swimming pool site. I say may because until it is in the bank the money isn't there. With a build cost of £1.25 million and £500,000 for investment to help pay for the running of the pool. Unfortunately, I feel the £500,000 won't be enough to keep the pool running. A pool will need public subsidy to keep open.

It is obvious that Martin Land is jumping the gun by announcing the amount the preferred bidder has made. This should come from the Town Council/Town Councillors not the paid help. Whilst this is welcome news, the money isn't in the bank.
