I would gladly pay a pound to keep it open. More things are held there than what people think, and its the last big thing we have left in sheffield, leeds will have a new bigger arena to compete with ours, the world snooker championship will be moved soon. So why would people visit sheffield our busy town centre with empty shops?
For those people who think paying a pound is a waste to keep it open, the plan is to redevelope the woodbourn road site again to try and get it to a similar level to don valley. So all your taxes will be spent on building a smaller crapier version of don valley.
Lets not forget all the money lost with the compulsary purchases made on the shops down the moor and around town for that redevelopement that has been going on for how many years now with nothing to show for it.
