Last updated at 08:11, Wednesday, 07 November 2012
SERVICES at Haltwhistle’s Swimming and Leisure Centre are under threat due to a funding crisis.
Members of Haltwhistle Town Council have been toldalmost £18,000 needs to be spent as a matter or urgency, or some facilities could close at the centre, which operates as an independent charity.
Leaking roofs above the squash court and store area for swimming pool equipment iscausing damage to the floor and ceiling, while water from gutters is dripping through the edges of the roof.
In addition, damage has been caused to perimeter fencing by vandals.

AT a public meeting in Wylam Institute it was decided to split the remaining money in the village's peace celebration fund between the village schools and a planned war memorial to the Fallen.
A brass plaque bearing the names of 19 former students who died in the Great War was to be erected in the Wylam Council Schools at a cost of £20 and £30 was to be donated to the war memorial fund.
