Leisure centre campaigners take to streets (From The Northern Echo)

A DRIVE is underway to saturate households across neighbouring communities with consultation documents to give them a chance to speak out over proposed leisure cuts.

Sherburn Leisure Centre is one of six under threat amid recession-driven cost-cutting measures put forward by Durham County Council.

A campaign group has rapidly formed among centre users to fight the plan to close what they say is a well-used facility serving not just Sherburn, but neighbouring villages to the east of Durham City.

The Sherburn SOS (Save Our Sports) group has taken news of a three-month consultation period as a call to arms.
