To: Barnet Council
We want you to reverse the decision to remove the diving facility at Barnet Copthall.
Why is this important?
Once this goes, that will be it. This is a service to the children in north London, the nearest one is Olympic park, and the other one is about 15-20 miles away.
If it closes, then taking our children diving three times a week is not going to happen.
My daughter, Hattie, only tried her first diving lesson last week, and she has been waiting to get in the team for so long, and they are all part of a team, a squad, young kids who pull together.
If they were going to tear up a football pitch, people would be up in arms.
Taking this facility away means that the current Tom Daley diving squad will have to travel 15-20 miles for the nearest like for like board heights. These kids train three times a week and take part in National Competitions.
How it will be delivered
We will email this petition to Barnet Council.
