Save Our Tropicana team grabs public support

CAMPAIGNERS fighting to get Weston’s Tropicana back in action were busy rallying an army of volunteers at the weekend as part of National Volunteers’ Week.
The Save Our Tropicana team gathered outside the derelict building on Saturday collecting signatures from supporters who want to see the former pool rebuilt.
This took place the same time as volunteers’ week, which is an annual celebration of the contribution made by millions across the UK.
Members of Save Our Tropicana were also given support by the Trop Trust, which is aiming to revitalise the seafront site.
The two teams want this plan to go ahead with the help of the right to contest, under the Localism Act, which allows communities to ask Government ministers for unused public land to be put to better use.
