Lichfield’s MP has revealed that further talks are taking place over the future of Friary Grange Leisure Centre.
Plans have been drawn up by Lichfield District Council to close the site in April 2020 after it claimed £2.4million was needed to bring it up to scratch.
But a petition has now been signed by thousands of residents and a public meeting has been organised for 7.30pm this evening (15th July) at Curborough Community Centre.
Conservative MP Mike Fabricant has now posted on social media that talks are taking place between council leader Cllr Doug Pullen and chief executive Diane Tilley.
Cllr Pullen has previously said that his preference would be to invest in a new centre rather than spend the money “patching up” an existing one.
