It'd be good if they could mark out a route to the leisure centre from New Square. Maybe a blue route to follow to emphasise some sort of a link up the ice rink.

They will have to do something since if someone's getting off the Metro or at the Bus Station the Baths will be in the opposite direction to everything else in the town. So some sort of signage will be required. But I always think you can't have enough signposts or blue routes telling folk where things are & base it on a person who's never been to the town before & so as no knowledge of the town.

One thing. The other day I was stuck in a line of traffic outside the New Tipton Baths & the exposed wood sections don't look good. Looks like they haven't been treated with any sort of protection. Worried these wooden sections could go the same.

Message to Darren Cooper, get your secretary to get the number of Ronseal LOL

I went to visit the leisure centre information centre today. It looks very impressive and has a lot more facilities than I thought it would. They told me it's due to open on 2nd of June so not long to wait.
