Last Tuesday, April Fool's days as it were, a number of us gathered at the Coburg Olympic Pool to mark the end of the swimming season for the year. According to our calculations, the community has missed out on 60 plus swim days this summer! That's days with temperatures of over 25 degrees, including 15 days with temperatures of more than 35 degrees. Can you believe it? How outrageous!!!
We milled around in the sunshine and tied ribbons on the fence. It was gloriously warm and inside the fence, the green grass and the blue tiles of the pools just begged to be filled with clean water and the shrieks of children enjoying the last day of swimming outside weather.
We are not going away until our beloved pool is opened for next summer and beyond!
