Your local council is considering closing a sports and leisure centre that it runs in order to save money. Write a letter to your local council. In your letter:

  1. give details how you, your friends and family use the centre.
  2. explain why sports and leisure centre is important for local community.
  3. describe the possible effects on local people if the centre closes.

Okay. This seems easy. Isn’t it? Let me present a structure with hints you should follow to answer this question:

Introduction: Yes. A letter has an introduction. An opening paragraph that explains the issue. Rather paraphrase the statement. It may include a word expressing your EMOTIONS. For instance “I’m writing this letter to express concern ……“.

Once you’re done writing about 20 words in introduction, its time to explain the body.

Since this is a letter to local council (which is usually made for welfare of local citizens) keep your tone friendly. Choose your words (usually verbs) very carefully. Now, let us brainstorm.

  1. How you use it: Name a few sports/activities. For instance reading books in centre’s library, swimming, dancing, tennis, etcetera.
  2. Humans are social animals. We need community, team work, society to survive. Mention benefits on physical and mental health.
  3. Possible effects: Physical effects, isolation, lack of community development.

In conclusion express alternatives to closing down the centre. Perhaps the local council can raise funds by increasing membership fees. Use your imagination.

    Here is my answer .Could you please correct it for me ?

    Dear Sir,
    I am writing to you to express my concern regarding the closure of the recreation center downtown.I am sorry to hear that.This is going to be a great loss to all its members and people in town.

    For a long time ,this leisure center had a major role in gathering people in our town.They used to meet there frequently in their spare time .Moreover,It includes one of the huge libraries in town that possesses a tremendous variety of books and encyclopedias .It is undoubtedly the reference to many researchers.

    In addition,The fitness center is an indulging experience for all athletes.Being fully equipped with the latest sports gear encourages my acquaintances and me to visit it on regular basis and practice there for hours.

    I am full of hope that you will reconsider your decision .This closure will have negative outcomes regarding our community .People will be discouraged to spend their free time outdoors with their families and friends.Further more,Physical health will be seriously affected.

    Alternatively,People should be encouraged to pay in accordance to services they receive.Also,membership fees are to be increased.Periodic maintenance should be added to the center subscription fees .Donation to our club is accepted from all society groups.Health organizations can launch their latest campaigns at the center ,and they can pay funds in return .

    Yours faithfully,
    Asmaa Salah
