Pool prices

Central Leader - - Letters -

I just wanted to say that I think that ad­mis­sion to the pools should be cheaper (Cen­tral Leader, Au­gust 6).

When I lived in Switzer­land my health in­sur­ance scheme paid for half of my an­nual swim­ming pool and gym subscriptions.

Their logic in do­ing this was that it is cheaper to keep peo­ple healthy than pay for ail­ments.

As the man in the ar­ti­cle also men­tioned it is a so­cial event too with friend­ships be­ing made at the pools. Be­ing happy is also an im­por­tant in­gre­di­ent in be­ing healthy.

I just wish that peo­ple could think more lat­er­ally. By fill­ing the pools with peo­ple pay­ing a lower ad­mis­sion rather than hav­ing fewer peo­ple go­ing would surely solve their dilemma. KIRI KNOWLES
