Protecting local services like Arthur Hill Swimming Pool

The Labour-run Reading Borough Council has closed Arthur Hill and Central Pool. I’m working with residents on a petition to save Arthur Hill - I learned to swim there as a child and want to see it reopened for the community.

Conservative-run Wokingham Borough Council is the lowest funded in the country. It has recently invested £14m rebuilding Bulmershe Leisure Centre with additional pool facilities.

I’m working with residents to hold the Labour-run Council to account, including calling them out when they're wasting our money - such as the £1m lost on the failed Mass Rapid Transit scheme and £0.5m on getting their accounts signed off 3 years late.

Save Athur Hill petition

I learned to swim at Arthur Hill pool as a kid. We must save it for the community. Reading has far too few leisure facilities for a town of its size.
