A FEW weeks ago, I sent an email to Cllr Cliff Morris regarding the lack of facilities at the new leisure centre in Horwich, mainly the lack of sauna and steam room, which have just been added to the five-year-old centre in Bolton.

I have this morning received an email from Jon Gorton on behalf of Cllr Morris.

Among one of his comments were that the members of Horwich can use the sauna at Bolton and the squash courts at Westhoughton.

So he expects Horwich members to work out at Horwich then travel to Bolton to use the sauna or steam room which is ridiculous. These amenities are meant to be used after exercise.

He also says that the sauna and steam room at Bolton are necessary to compete with other centres — obviously not the poor relations of Horwich.
