Steve writes about the mayor's TV interview in the Club newsletter.

If you saw the mayor's TV interview on Monday, you will already know that the council has approved the new sports centre at last! It's great news for the New Town community, and especially for the Club. At last we will be able to use the very best facilities!

Our mayor said the centre would be open in six months' time. That seems a very short time to complete such a big and complex building, and I expect it will be open a little later than that. If it does open on time, we'll have a party!

The centre will probably have parking for 500 cars. This means there will be plenty of room for visitors from outside New Town. If these people come to the centre, it will be very good for the community. We will also be able to invite other sports clubs to join in our own activities. As you know, I have wanted to do this for a long time. We all know how much fun it is to get together with people who share our interest in adventure sports.

The centre will most likely be open 7 days a week. This will be good for our weekend activities. I hope we will be able to use the pool for training, as I know many of you are very keen swimmers. Jin Hee's Tae Kwon Do classes will most likely move to the centre as well. This is great news, as the room she is using at the moment is much too crowded. Her classes are so popular!

If we can get a room at the new centre, we'll have our meetings there. This will be a big improvement.

So, there's a lot to look forward to when the new sports centre opens. It's been a long time coming, but now all you Adventure Sports Club members can be happy that it's finally on the way! Well done, Mr Baskett!
