Byrne Avenue Baths' sale makes me want to cry

REGARDING Byrne Avenue Baths; all of our family used to go to get a weekly bath as we had no bathroom in our house and mum had 15 children.

Plus when I was a teenager I went roller skating there and go to their dances.

It was a wonderful place for us teenagers.

It is a shame the kids of today don't have a place like that, it would keep them out of trouble.

I suppose the council will find money to build houses there when it is pulled down.

It makes me want to cry.

I am with you there Rose. I learnt to swim at Byrne Ave many moons ago and it was somewhere you could go and have a good time. I really thought it was saved a few years ago but the investment never came.

It makes me laugh when we have places in the likes of Rock Park that are protected listed buildings and you cannot so much as change the colour of the paint on your front door with out permission from English Heritage and the likes yet they allow a building with the history of Byrne Ave Baths to go to rack and ruin, despite a massive offer of £300,000 of an ex Wirral resident.
