CHARGES: Council lets us down

editorial image

I read with great interest some of the letters about increasing charges at leisure centres, (News Post Leader, November 3).

Many people seem surprised at the council rise in health facility charges.

Those of us of a more suspicious nature were wondering where the money was coming from that the council used to purchase Manor Walks shopping centre. I guess we have our answer now.

Still, I believe it won’t be long before the council ruins this recent purchase – that, and alienating the users of Active Northumberland facilities.

Just as well there are cheaper facilities available locally.

Good old county council, it never seems to fail to let us all down.
