Council considered a Mayoral Minute at its meeting held on 11 October 2016 regarding the commemoration of Barry Rodgers and resolved as follows:
RESOLUTION: (Andrews/Garcia) that:
1. the indoor 25m training pool at the Des Renford Leisure Centre be named the Barry Rodgers Pool.
2. a naming ceremony be held with the family of the late Barry Rodgers.
The family was appreciative of the sentiment from Council, however, the family has indicated a preference that the pool be named in honour of both John and Barry Rodgers.
Both John and Barry Rodgers hand dug the 25m indoor pool in the 1960s and then used the pool for swimming classes and squad training.
The family has requested that the pool be named “The Rodgers Brothers Learn to Swim Pool”.
