Commenting on the story: City council to seek state and federal funding for new Aquatic Centre

Rather than up-scale this centre once again even further with more vested interests created, it should go back to its previous role as a family-based open-air local facility befitting its location in public parkland. Refurbishment in the direction of serving the older people of the City would be sensible. Demographically, North Adelaide is expected to grow into the senior age range.

Also, the centre should be listed as an attraction in the connector bus route for city visitors in all those hotels that are coming on stream. – David Donaldson

What a cheek of the Adelaide City Council. They had an offer from Adelaide Football Club to rebuild the Aquatic Centre and they knocked it back and now they want to have the taxpayer foot the biggest chunk of the bill. I hope the government tells them just where to go – politely of course. – Fred Driver

I agree that state and federal funding should be made available for the new North Adelaide Aquatic Centre. This is clearly not just a local government issue. However, the 50-metre pool must not be outdoor. It needs to be an indoor facility for all year use and there needs to be more than only eight lanes available for the many lap swimmers like myself. – Max Dyason

Commenting on the story: Chairs to be replaced in children’s cancer ward after father raises concerns

The chairs in question may or may not be an infection risk but leaving that question aside, they are clearly aesthetically unacceptable in a paediatric cancer ward that is supposed to give a message of hope and diligent care to the sick children and their parents.

The chairs need to be replaced urgently and my family would be happy to bear the cost.

It does not auger well for the next six years at the WCH where inevitably resources will be deliberately wound down in preparation for the new WCH where we are to spend almost $2 billion for one extra bed, which makes one wonder how much a new recliner chair will cost? – Associate Professor John Svigos AM
