Petition kicks off bid to save Golden Square pool

A PETITION containing more than 1000 signatures condemning the closure of the Golden Square Swimming Pool was handed to City of Greater Bendigo councillor Elise Chapman on Thursday night.

A group of concerned residents also handed in a list of questions to be put to the council at its next meeting on December 19.

Golden Square resident Ken Hamilton said the questions regarded the pool’s financial situation.

“We also asked that the council obtain a second independent engineer’s assessment of the pool and requested to meet with the council to have further discussions about opening the pool for next summer,” Mr Hamilton said. 

He said the 1017 signatures collected in the petition were just the start. “We collected them mainly in the past week. We are still collecting and will add more later,” he said.
