Kirklees Busy-Bodies Are At It Again

Word reaches me that the Enemies of Enjoyment are on the march again in West Yorkshire. Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL), which is some irksome offshoot of Kirklees Council (itself well-known locally for many previous attempts to abolish fun in as many forms as possible) is at war with the excellent Holme Valley Amateur Swimming Club for the way it manages its junior swimming sessions. The upshot is that the club have been forced to abandon their children's "fun swim" on some ludicrous and doubtless trumped-up Health and Safety concerns.

Womble on Tour is still drilling down to get to the detail. When he has it, so will you.

UPDATE: Initial investigations underway and it doesn't get any better. KAL has issued the swimming club with a whole number of (undocumented) ultimata, which the club has continuously bent over backwards to meet. The Club is doing its best to manage the relationship but KAL appear hell-bent on confrontation. They seem especially vindictive and mean-minded about children's fun swims, and have even gone as far as physically removing children's equipment from the pool side.
Watch this space for more news about the way these government-sponsored cronies are bullying the very people in our communities that they should be supporting, but in the meantime Womble On Tour asks: Who the hell do these people think they are ?
