Plans are to close two sports centres in Leeds. The sports centres are East Leeds Sports Centre and Garforth Squash and Sports Centre.
“If these sports centres are to close then the nearest sports centre to East Leeds is Fearnville Sports Centre which is NOT accessible for those people who are disabled”.
“I like swimming but it is too far to go to Fearnville Sports Centre. I like East Leeds Sports Centre because the staff are helpful and the centre is brilliant”
“If East Leeds Sports Centre were to close how will people with learning disabilities will get to Fearnville Sports Centre. There is no direct bus route and people with learning disabilities with have to go into town and out again which is harder to do and more expensive!”
“Sports are an important way for disabled people to stay healthy and these closures will have a big impact on disabled people’s health”.
