CAN St Helens get any more dull?

This was my reaction on hearing about the closure of the Fives football centre.

I have used this facility on a weekly basis. A place where friendships were formed and fun was had.

Young and old keeping fit in this obesity epidemic. We will now be forced to travel to and spend money in neighbouring towns where the councils realise the benefits of places like this. So farewell Fives, you left us too soon.
