We asked the Council to remove two dumped mattresses which were blocking the pavement on Harewood Row.
We have called for action by the NHS to save the Grade II listed Samaritan Hospital for Women on Marylebone Road which is visibly decaying since it was abandoned over 20 years ago in 1997.
Seymour Leisure Centre
We have again asked the Council about the cold showers experienced by Seymour Leisure Centre users, who say:
“The showers were cold again yesterday in Seymour Leisure Centre. There were lots of children there and their mums were complaining. The person in reception gets the brunt of the complaints, the management never follow up. It’s been cold on and off most of the winter. I just don’t know how to make them listen.”
The Leisure Team say:
“The latest “heating issue”, however is being caused by the pressurisation unit which regulates the entire buildings heat load and which went down over the weekend. The unit is no longer serviceable and needs to be replaced. We’ve placed an order and asked for the works to be carried out as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, the unit is having to be manually regulated which is difficult to do and very much hit and miss. The level of repairs and issues reflects the age and condition of the plant equipment and a root and branch replacement will be required sooner rather than later. In the meantime, we will continue to repair as and when issues come to light, which unfortunately are more frequent at the moment.”
