The Broomhill Pool Trust was delighted to meet with Tom Hunt MP (Ipswich) and Cllr Liz Harsant (IBC & SCC) to provide a tour of the pool on Tuesday afternoon (9 August 2022).
The Broomhill Pool Trust appreciates that Ipswich’s Grade II listed lido enjoys cross party support from Ipswich’s two Conservative MPs, Labour administered Ipswich Borough Council and Ipswich Lib-Dems & Greens.
Ipswich MP Tom Hunt MP and Central Suffolk & North Ipswich MP Daniel Poulter are both backing Broomhill Pool, with a bold bid by Ipswich Borough for additional funds from the Government’s Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Levelling Up Fund.
The bid is one of two submitted by Ipswich Borough Council, and in the case of Broomhill Pool is to enable the lido’s restoration to be re-started, plus provides extra to restore the Wicksteed diving stage, and fit a retractable boom allowing for a 50m heated competition pool and/or contained diving area. The bid outcome is likely to be known in Autumn.
One thought on “Meeting with Tom Hunt MP.”
It’s rather sad to see how quickly the place is going down hill, something needs to be done soon, I did see kids in there not so long ago jumping up and down on the pool covering, the fence needs looking at soonest.
