Why is caf� closed at leisure centre?

SIR – Regarding Birchwood Leisure Centre in Hatfield.

Why has Hatfield Town Council closed the cafe on these premises?

This is depriving the users, mostly young children, of refreshments, much needed after vigorous exercise in the sports centre.

They now have to pay for a cup of water from a machine, whereas previously a member of staff would make a nice fruit squash for a thirsty child for a small sum.

What on earth do these councillors hope to achieve by their actions?

Alan Upson,

Birchwood Avenue,
