Lakelanders complain to Council about Forum plans

THE ENNISKILLEN Lakelanders has warned any closure of the Lakeland Forum, without an alternative pool being provided, will have “a profound impact” on the club and its swimmers for years to come.

The Forum is set to undergo a multi-million pound modernisation redevelopment, and while no date has set yet for when this will begin, it is expected the major project will see the facility closed for a significant period.

The club warned any closure without an alternative pool being provided would harm the prospects for local swimmers for years to come.
