    The Swimming Pool and Stadium facilities have been the subject of much debate for some time now. Many people on the Vale have their own views on what should and should not be happening for its future.

    One thing that we all know is that the Council will not be funding these facilities for much longer and its time that people had a say on what or how these facilities ans services should be managed.

    I would urge everybody who cares about our facilities to pop along on Saturday and have your say. If not, decisions will be made and you will not have had the opportunity to contribute. It is no good moaning after the event.

    I know I’ll be popping along.

    I think now is the time for residents who enjoy the facilities on Farnborough Road to come togetheron this issue.

    We only seem to want to come together when we have a tragedy or a crisis and then, unfortunately its shortlived.

    The Pool and Stadium needs to be managed correctly as we know that these facilities have not been for years but its no point MOANING after decisions have been made.

    Get involved and have a say OR let somebody else do it but don’t moan afterwards when things are not as they should be.

    Those facilities should be open when the local community want them not shutters down everytime you go past.

    Have the staff promoting the facilities would help, if they were to be a little bit more enthusiastic in their jobs. Staff smoking outside doesn’t really give a good image either,but nobody seems to want to do anything about it.

    The Vale SHOULD stand together on this one as it effects all of us, in terms of facilities that could if we are not careful be boarded up and lost to all of us.

    Imagine what the consequences may be.
    Swimming Pool – boarded up
    Stadium – boarded up
    Conservation area – not maintained and being left to vandalism and fly tipping.

    It doesn’t bare thinking about

  3. The council will fund them If they show they make money. The stadium should provide sports classes in football, hockey, rugby, tennis, badminton etc. There are a number of extra sports it can be used for.

    The pool should also provide more, water polo, net ball, life guard training etc. These facilities need to provide a range of activities to carry on running. I know these will cost but these activities would be chargeable.

    We should also utilise some rooms for judo, karate, boxing of which are proven to help young people manage their aggression and give them an outlet. Again these can be chargeable.

    Also to save money, check if you can save on suppliers ie pool cleaning, electricity, heating etc see if some deals can be done. Make things more inviting, the pools exterior is a full grey paint it yellow or red give it some life and make it warm and welcoming. Also advertise some more and stop smokers from doing it out the front, provide space out the back.

  4. i believe people are interesed on castle vale but with companys like merlin/.tra/.cvcha

  5. Looking forward to seeing Badminton played at the Stadium…….

  6. TRA: WHAT A JOKE.
    MERLIN: MOVED OFF THE ESTATE MANAGING DIRECTOR LIVES THE OTHERSIDE OF LONDON.
    I WON’T BE VOTING FOR THESE TWO COMPANYS.
    THE PERSON ABOVE IS QUITE CORRECT ,LETS PUT OUR HOUSE IN ORDER FIRST. OUR ESTATE HAS GONE DONE THE NICK.
    ONLY IF CASTLE VALE RESIDENTS ARE INVOLVED IN THIS TRANSFER
    I WOULD SUPPORT THIS NOT TRA OR MERLIN OR CVCHA.

  7. Here we go again the Anonymous’s are at it again

    STOP , get off your backside and do something.
    either form a group to appose the people/companies you moan about
    or shut up and be quiet.
    or better still GO AWAY.

  8. whether you are anonymous or not nobody listens to the residents.

  9. asset to the community

    There was a meeting on Saturday. It was well publicised via this web site and vale mail, it was at Spitfire House at 10pm. if you wanted to you could have brought your computer with you and made comments via that someone would have read them out for you, you could have even come in disguise if you so wished!!! Stop hiding behind a computer and get involved, residents have got every opportunity so go to the next one or stop MOANING!

  10. J. Evans - Hedley Croft

    I wished people would stop remaining anonymous and make themselves known it they genuinely care about what the future holds for the facilities on Farnborough Road.

    When a community asset transfer goes ahead and the Pool, Stadium and surrounding facilities are being managed differently, hopefully the whole community will benefit.

    I for one am very interested as I live on Castle Vale and care about the facilities that we have. We should all care !!

    The sooner this process happens, the better for all of us that want to use them for our leisure purposes and at a time when we want them open.

    Let’s face it, the Council do not want to continue managing these facilities and they won’t continue to subsidise them.

  11. community facil 11

    It will take the whole of the Vale Community to be involved and to pass on their valued opinions and thoughts. There is a lot of excellent behind the scenes work carried out by the TRA – most of the team live on the estate – Merlin and the various groups at The Sanctuary, but it needs the residents to turn up for the discussions and meetings to help these parties develop a productive plan of action. A blame culture does not get anything done – the past is done with. ‘Work as One’ and the facilities can and will prosper for future generations.

  12. So does anyone know what’s happening with the asset transfer, it seems to have gone very quiet since this meeting.
