Help DX save Moorways Swimming Pool!



Derby Council announced back at the start of December that they would be  shutting Moorways Swimming Pool in Derby in March 2015. This will lead to DXs training sessions reduced due to no replacement pool in place. Many of you have heard of Buxton’s swimmer Abbie Wood who is part of DX swimming squad,this will also mean her training hours reduced which her training has helped her get into Team GB on a number of occasions.

Can we please ask everyone to get behind this Campaign to save Moorways until a new pool is available.
