Project 25 (Again?)


BILLY'S CONTRACT



In November, Mark Maguire told us that Pools would be launching Project 25 in December, detailing the renovation of Victoria Park and Pools' aspirations of playing League One football in the year 2025.

Since the announcement the best part of two months has elapsed which has seen a new government elected, Brexit being signed off - and Duffy from Casualty dying.

It seemed to be all very quiet on the North Eastern front. That was until I was scanning the Mail for the pigeon racing results when my eye caught sight of this article (see italics below) about the possible plans to overhaul and relocate the ageing Mill House Leisure Centre.
"the best part of two months has elapsed which has seen a new government elected, Brexit being signed off - and Duffy from Casualty dying."

Other options looked at included refurbishing the existing Mill House Centre and to integrate leisure facilities into a redeveloped Mill House Stand at Victoria Park, but the Waterfront offer was recommended as the number one choice by council officers.

Having digested this piece, it left me wondering if Mark Maguire's vision may have been connected to the HBC plans to redevelop the Mill House stand. That being the case, based on what has been reported, it looks very much as if Project 25 is still on the launching pad ...or dead in the Marina!

Hartlepool, I think we have a problem!
