Fylde Council have received a report from Active Lancashire regarding the quality, quantity and accessibility of swimming facilities across Fylde.

The report identifies the potential within the borough to meet the needs of local residents to access water space following the closure of Kirkham Rural Splash facility, and provides three key recommendations as to how this can be achieved.

Cllr Jane Nixon, Fylde Council’s Lead Member For Tourism, Leisure and Culture, stated: “The closure of the YMCA Kirkham facility was an unfortunate blow to rural Fylde residents. We welcome the recommendations made in the Active Lancashire report, commissioned in collaboration with Kirkham Town Council, and will be consulting with local stakeholders and engaging with local facilities to try to ensure that our residents across the borough have access to adequate swimming provision.”
