Michael Fabricant will be unable to attend the Public Meeting on the 7th October to discuss the future of swimming in Lichfield, but has told the Council he supports the many petitioners who want to keep a pool in the City. Michael says: “Unfortunately, I have to be in Westminster on Monday evening – I am on a Parliamentary committee passing a law on airline competition post-Brexit as well as other legislation. But the Council know I strongly support the need to keep a public swimming pool in the City and I have discussed this both with the Council and with the Friary School.
“I will continue to stay in close contact with Cllr Doug Pullen regarding this and have asked that he apologises for me and explains the reasons for my absence from the meeting on Monday evening. Doug and I think as one about this issue so I am hoping for a positive outcome.
“I know that the Council has been negotiating hard with the County who owned the facility and with the Friary School on whose grounds it is situated.”
