Sporting responses

NEARLY 1,000 responses to a questionnaire about the future use of the Townfoot sports centre have been completed.
The working group investigating its redevelopment has held regular meetings with stakeholders, including a visit to Rock UK in Newcastleton and the Kirkcudbright Swim & Gym centre.
Both of these have pools of about 20m long by 8m wide. The main objective of these visits was to learn more about the running and operational challenges of a larger swimming pool.
The working group’s application for funding to support a feasibility study was successful and it will receive support from the Arthur Bell Trust Fund, Ashleybank Investments Ltd, Bowman Little Trust Fund, The Stevenson Trust and Stoneypath Trust.

Campbell Scott, chairman, told the E&L Advertiser: “We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to the volunteers who gave their valuable time helping to distribute the survey questionnaire.
“We would like to thank everyone who completed the survey and our funders for their support.
“The objective of our survey questionnaire was to try to make sure everyone in the community had an opportunity to receive it and give us their views.
“The survey results will help us to understand what the community wants and needs from a redeveloped sports centre.
“The response to the survey has been very positive and we have received nearly 1,000 responses.
“We believe this reflects strong support for the community-led project.”
The next steps for the working group are to upload the data from the survey questionnaires and analyse the data.
This analysis will form an important part of the interim feasibility study report, which will be published by the end of August.
