Drawing inspiration from real-world examples in North Yorkshire, Durham, Greater Manchester and beyond, the conversation delves deep into the essence of why local authority leisure exists. The webinar aims to challenge preconceived notions and pose critical questions about what our communities would look like without the vital contribution of the public sector in providing leisure facilities.
