Petition leads to council pledge to review leisure services
A PETITION calling for Scartho Baths to be saved was handed over to council chiefs today.
Campaigners aiming to keep the public baths on Scartho Road open presented a 5,500-signature petition on the steps of Grimsby town hall as councillors came under growing pressure to do a U-turn on the planned closure of the 50-year-old baths.
Among the campaigners was Paralympic swimmer Marc Woods and veteran channel swimmer Brenda Fisher, 85, who were joined by MPs, swimmers and residents.
A spokesman for North East Lincolnshire Council has agreed to set up a select committee to look at the costs of leisure services in future.
