Just thought I'd give people a heads up about this. Pool has been out of action for over a year. Not even a left/right divide here - unless someone can invent one. Link to petition:

I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Read about this recently. Was staggered at what they claimed the cost of repairing a cracked window was.

Been swimming there on numerous occasions in my younger years and loved it. In fact, the entire complex is a one-off and like much of the park, criminally underused and rated.

 


In 1967, when Polish mercenary Rafal Ganowicz was asked what it felt like to take human life, replied: "I wouldn't know, I've only ever killed communists."

Seen it, but never swam in it. Did my early swimming in the old Scarbrook Road pool and spent many a summer at Purley Way.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Would probably be cheaper to knock it all down and start again.

South London could support a world class sports venue. It would be nice if we could get a mayor who's support investment in it.

the National Sports Centre is a good metaphor for Selhurst.

It has certainly seen a better day, but it's our 'hood and i still love it.

I used to swim at West Wickham. I suspect the old baths aren't there any more but don't know.

I did lessons there. Guy used to push you in and if you were drowning, hook you out with that pole and noose thing. Those were the days.

Classic case of 'you don't know what you've missed until it has gone'. Hw many schools SHOULD be using this facility , especially where the Primary Schools are concerned, with all of this Government ringfenced funding for PE and Sport?
