I've been in touch with
Byrne Avenue Community Trust
and have asked and been told that when they get the lease in the next month or 2 it could be possible to get a tour of it before renovation.
If anyone else is interested in going, I have suggested each donating a couple of quid to the fund

List for interested folks

I would love to do the tour.

Use to go there every week in the 60's and 70's and had swim lessons from age four with Mr Huddard...any one remember him? He was a right character.. full of stories. He walked with a bad limp ..said it was a war wound.. but as I said.. he was full of stories.

Lots of happy memories of the place!
