Give Kingston a swimming pool

We the undersigned petition the council to recognise our voices and the importance of the Kingfisher leisure centre as a health and wellbeing hub. We ask the council to either prioritise funding the necessary repairs or legally commit to providing a new and equal council facility (in the same location) with a timescale given for the opening of this facility. We will all be suffering the loss of Kingfisher by way of lost health/fitness/social activities or by increased pressure on the remaining local facilities once leisure centres reopen after lockdown

444 of us signed a petition last year (which was never debated by a committee) but the Kingfisher was always a well used facility. There have been significant grants to Kingfisher in recent years, with a major refurbishment less than five years old. The Kingfisher is unique with it's location/accessibility and provisions (family friendly "beach", wave machine and health suite and squash courts). One council swimming pool for the entire borough is not enough and Kingfisher is easily accessible to everyone in borough by public transport in a way that New Malden is not
