Defiant message from pre-school
7:00am Friday 13th July 2012 in News
“WE’RE going nowhere” - that’s the message from a Southampton pre-school based next to a closure-threatened public swimming pool.
As reported, city council bosses have announced controversial plans to shut the loss-making Oaklands Swimming Pool in Lordshill, saving the £235,000 subsidy spent on the facility each year.
But the move has caused some public uncertainty over the future of Oasis Pre-School, which is based at the Fairisle Road site, and with limited spaces for September still available, bosses have moved to clarify the nursery is staying.
Pre-school manager Alex Tarling said: “We can assure parents that we are not only staying open, but staying open from 9am until 3.30pm every day and we have been given approval to expand to 40 children.”
