Your local council is considering closing a sports and leisure centre that it runs, to save money.
Write a letter to the local council. In your letter
- Give details of how you and your friends or family use the centre to explain why the sports and leisure centre is important for the local community
- Describe the possible effects on local people if the centre closes
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter regarding the sports centre in the town. I have heard from the staff that the council has been considering to shut down the centre due to insufficient funding.
This amenity centre is quite important to my family because my family members visit this centre daily to do sports activities. My son and I love to play badminton, whereas my daughter joined the swimming classes.
This is a budget centre for the residents where they can play sports. Many sports professionals from the town use this centre to furnish their skills. This sports centre helped several sportspersons to play at the national level.
If you close this centre, it would have a damaging effect on people’s health. This is because numerous people are using this facility to keep their body fit. Also, many sportspersons will stop practising because they cannot afford to pay high fees for private centres.
I hope you would reconsider your decision for the benefit of the local community.
