SDLP give backing to Rock Pool retention

SIR, — The SDLP is absolutely committed to supporting the Rock Pool along with the wider Newcastle community who love the facility and all that it stands for.

The pool is an important part of our local 

heritage which has many possibilities for restoration, enhancement and improvement. 

It is incumbent on all elected members to work together as pitting one project against another or one part of the district against another is deeply unhelpful. 

It is important that we all pull in the same direction and do our best to deliver the most for our community. 

The Rock Pool is a Newry, Mourne and Down Council asset and I will do all I can at Assembly level to support Cllr Laura Devlin and the network of councillors in delivering a restored Rock Pool for the betterment of the wider area.

Yours etc,
