KEEP BLUEWAVE HYDROTHERAPY POOL AND GYM COMPLEX OPEN for the disabled

Keep Bluewave Hydrotherapy Pool and Gym Complex opened to the public

Why is this important?

The Bluewave hydrotherapy Complex is a specialist facility that serves the most vulnerable and marginalised members of our community - namely the disabled and elderly. There is no facility in Kent that offers the equipment and service that this complex can offer, such as the hydrotherapy pool, specialist weight training and cardiovascular equipment and pain management classes. This space is a social hub that provides some of the more vulnerable members of the community with a place to converse, improve their health and interact with others. The complex receives exercise referrals from the NHS and is also used by a number of special needs and state schools. The loss of this facility would be devastating for the local community!

Please can you sign the petition so Bluewave can remain open and continue providing this crucial support to our community.

Reasons for signing

  • Blue wave is useful, friendly and very accessible - in every sense - community facility.
  • I signed as I suffer from fibromyalgia and anxiety and depression. I can't go to normal pools Because of my anxiety displays keeps me calm and I feel safe here to be able to swim in peace where if I go into mainstream pools I have a flare up of my condition and text me weeks to get back to some sort of normality I use this place every day if you take it away I'll be stuck indoors getting sicker this is the place for People disabilities and health conditions
  • A much needed local facility.
