On 14th September 2018, the New Milton Advertiser reported that New Forest District Council are coming close to approving the privatisation of Ringwood Health and Leisure centre, something that they have been mooting for years.
We believe that this is being done to cut costs because the Tory Westminster government is forcing the Tory New Forest District Council to cut its spending.
We believe that privatisation will mean higher charges for users and lower pay for employees. Money will be sucked out of the local area to pay for the dividends of distant shareholders.
We the undersigned think that our leisure centres should remain in public hands and available to all.
