Pack the Pool at Batemans Bay

Batemans Bay public pool is ageing and needs to be replaced. Council is proposing a 25 metre indoor pool, which would be open year round, to replace the current 50m outdoor pool.

There is a campaign to retain a 50m outdoor pool in the mix. This is not in opposition to a 25 m indoor pool as well.

On Saturday 24 Nov, there was a gathering at the pool called by the 50m pool supporters. I happened to be swimming laps and joined in. I do not like swimming indoors, and a 50m stretch out is preferable to 25m. You can also swim more comfortably with several people in the lane.

One woman near me said it was the first protest she had ever attended. There's no stopping people when they find a cause which touches them!
