” Rock ferry primary used the pool to teach us how to swim. I remember back in the 80’s walking from Ionic street in pairs holding hands with whoever you were paired up with! We used the pool religiously during the summer holidays and I took my first ever girlfriend there on our first “date”. My father used to go to ninjitsu classes at Byrne Avenue also when I was in my late teens, it is a place that holds many great memories and would be able to provide many more for others if it is saved. I hope we can keep this part of our community here and restore it.”
