Supporters of Save Temple Cowley Pools created badges for people to pledge not to vote Labour until they got their pool back in January 2015.

Leading campaigner Chaka Artwell and other supporters of the Save Temple Cowley Pools made badges that said: “No Temple Cowley Pools, No Votes For Labour.”

Supporters gathered outside the pool holding plaques and handing out the badges for this photograph.

Residents of East Oxford fought for years to save and reopen the beloved swimming pool just off the top of the Cowley Road after it closed in 2015.

Housing developer Catalyst had bought the site from Oxford City Council in December 2014 for £3.6m, but the locals still carried on fighting.

However it was deemed to be financially unviable, and in 2017 city councillors finally voted to approve plans for 48 homes on the Temple Road plot.

Catalyst started construction work the following year, building a small new estate which it boasted was '100 per cent affordable'.

The defeated swimmers were directed by the city council to use the pool at the Leys Pool and Leisure Centre on Pegasus Road in Blackbird Leys.
