Pool closure highlights need for new facility
The possibility of a new swimming pool for a town has been touted after councillors said the pandemic had highlighted the shortcomings of the existing centre.
A petition signed by more than 400 people is calling on Shropshire Council to commit to reopening Whitchurch's swimming pool.
North Shropshire contains some of the biggest towns in the county including Whitchurch, Market Drayton, Wem and Ellesmere. It is one of the most well connected areas of Shropshire with the A41, A49 and A53 running through it, with Whitchurch being signposted across the country.
