In 1994, the Fitzroy pool was saved
after the Commissioners, who ran the local
council in those dark days, backed down
in the face of a massive campaign that
had thousands out in the streets
and a well organised occupation
to defend the pool site.

The Friends of the Fitzroy Swimming Pool

The Friends of the Pool group is now
in suspended animation.
It slumbers, ready to be awakened
at the first hint of a move
to wreck or shut down
the mighty Fitzroy pool.
