Editor's Comment: Can we maintain facilities?
DO we have too many towns in North East Lincolnshire and not enough people or visitors to support the facilities that all the towns want?
In Cleethorpes the Parkway cinema is great and attracts a lot of people, especially in the evenings – bringing in a vital night-time economy.
Now wouldn’t it be great to have the same in Grimsby.
Yes, it would be – but surely unrealistic to think that the two towns could sustain a cinema in each. Maybe for the big blockbuster films, but otherwise it is unlikely to be financially viable.

Do leisure centres and sporting facilities not fit into the same bracket as that talked of above?
Currently there are facilities scattered all over the place – the majority are aging and in need of major refurbishment.
And can it honestly be justified to have so many to serve the population?
So the sensible thing to do is certainly to look at containing these facilities – with perhaps the exception of Cleethorpes’ swimming pool, which attracts a healthy tourist trade.
On paper, it makes financial sense – if you create one facility it would be more cost effective and much better used as a central hub for sport and leisure.
However in the present economic times such a plan brings forward its own challenges as pennies will only stretch so far.
And the public will understandably have something to say about the loss of facilities near to them – amenities they value and support.
