The Redditch Borough Council has come up with a brilliant plan to save money heating the public swimming pool
. They plan to let the local crematorium do it. If the proposal goes through, the Abbey Stadium Sports Centre will be heated from the furnaces of Redditch Cemeteries & Crematorium. From the article: "But local people have expressed concerns at the proposals, branding them 'eerie'. Simon Thomas, of Thomas Brothers Funeral Directors, said: 'I don't know how comfortable people would feel about the swimming pool being heated due to the death of a loved one, I think it's a bit strange and eerie. I'm not comfortable with it at all and I think trying to save money due to the death of someone's family member or friend is a bit sick. I think it will cause uproar and may even put people off using the facilities which would lose the council money." I guess this is one way to get the goth kids swimming.
