In conjunction with the council elections on Saturday, 9th September, Cumberland Council will ask voters for their opinion on the future of the swimming centres in the local area.

A "Yes" vote in the poll will help to ensure the local pools remain open and are properly maintained.

A "No" vote in the poll will most likely result in the closure of 2 or 3 of the pools in the local area.

The Club is encouraging the community to vote YES in the poll.

Club Members are encouraged to have their say by:
  • attending one of the Community Consultation Meetings and voicing your concerns about council closing pools, and the impacts this will have on you and your family
    • Monday 28 August 2017 – Granville Town Hall – 11am – 2pm
    • Tuesday 29 August 2017 – Merrylands Oval – 6pm – 9pm
    • Wednesday 30 August 2017 – Berala Terry Keegan Hall – 11am – 2pm
    • Thursday 31 August 2017 – Penulwuy Community Centre – 7pm – 10pm
  • discussing your concerns with candidates in the elections to ensure they consider your concerns in any decision council may make about the local pools
  • discussing the issue with your family and friends and encouraging them to vote YES at the poll
  • discussing the issue with families from your local schools and making them aware of how the loss of any local pools will have an impact on school carnivals, learn to swim lessons and school sport, and encouraging them to vote YES at the poll
