During a council meeting a decision was made to change ‘BATHURST AQUATIC CENTRE’ to ‘MANNING AQUATIC CENTRE’ in honour of the late John Manning and his wife Nina. ‘Mr Manning’ as he was known to the community managed Bathurst Aquatic Centre for 32 years, before retiring in 1994.
After Mr Manning’s passing in September last year, an online petition started in call for the council to rename the Aquatic Centre.
We are now pleased to say that Bathurst Aquatic Centre has been renamed to Manning Aquatic Centre in memory of Mr and Mrs Manning and as recognition of the contributions of the Manning family over the years.
In honour of John Manning and his family.
