I WOULD like to congratulate the team at Newcastle City Council for such a wonderful job on completing Merewether Baths, pictured, on time and on budget (almost).
I was there on Thursday when the baths ‘‘unofficially’’ opened.
The swimming die-hards and mums with young ones flocked to crystal-clear water and a rejuvenated complex.
While swimming, I couldn’t help wondering whether heating and a cocktail bar could have been within the scope ... but I guess I can’t have everything. Joking, of course.
Overall, well done and I look forward to enjoying the baths with my family for many decades to come. Thank you.
