Warm sup­port

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - RON HOOD Auck­land city

In re­sponse to an ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing the Tepid Baths (Auck­land City Har­bour News, May 9), I would like to stress how much I ap­pre­ci­ate and use them.

As a re­tired 79-year-old liv­ing in Greys Ave I walk to the Tepid Baths for an en­joy­able swim many times a week.

This dou­ble ex­er­cise is not only ben­e­fi­cial but I per­son­ally find it up­lift­ing. It is ob­vi­ous while I am there that I am not the only lo­cal user and that the other users are of all ages. From chil­dren learn­ing to swim to teenagers and older per­sons com­plet­ing many laps be­fore they re­turn to work or to their homes.

I would add that the cost of up­grad­ing the baths would be money well spent in the in­ter­ests of the whole com­mu­nity.
