Have a thought £35 million pound sports centre updates to save lives.

It is hoped the investment will play a key role in improving the health and well being of the city’s unfit.

A council report on the proposal says that in 2014 there were 1591 premature deaths in Salford, and of these “there is potential that 264 were directly linked to physical inactivity.”

I wonder where will the cash come from and secondly would it not make more financial sense to make the facilities more  available to the large proportion of low paid residents of this city, but with Labour it looks like more PFIs or unsupported borrowing putting more strain on the cities bank balance.
