Re-open Rishworth Sportsclub
Rishworth Sports Club was closed suddenly and unexpectedly by Rishworth School on Thursday 7 April at 9.15 p.m. without any consultation or warning to the club staff, members and others users. No explanation for the closure has been offered. We are urging Rishworth School to reconsider this shocking decision.
Rishworth School opened the club to members in 2007. The club was officially opened by the Princess Anne. For the past 9 years the facilities have been used by the local community. (Prior to this, the pool was used by many members of the community for some 30 years). Over 500 members swam, many daily, and others used the gym. The club provided a safe environment for members, some of whom are elderly, vulnerable and disabled. This closure has ripped the heart out of the local community who have now lost a valuable, well used facility.
Rishworth School, please give us our club back and help make a difference to the lives of local people!
