    Default swimming lessons

    Sooooo I lived about 100 yards from
    Len Fairclough and walked past his luxury bungalow each school day - we were so impressed with having one of the world’s most famous people on our ‘doorstep’ UNTIL he was arrested for ‘incidents’ involving young children- in the public baths at Ramsbottom !!

    Thankfully I would only ever go to Bury baths as it was far bigger and of course very familiar !!

    I used to go to a pool in Stockport with the changing rooms around the sides.

    It was very small, bing only 5 by 10 metres.

    We would get taken by coach from school as it was too far to walk.

    Years ago the pool was pulled down & the area redeveloped.

    I just remembered that in around 1987 the regular leisure centre that we had our swimming lessons was closed due to renovation, and so we had to travel a few miles on the bus to another leisure centre which happens to be in the area that I live in now (27 years before I moved), and that was my very first taste of this area.

    Our regular swimming pool had changing rooms around the sides as well.

    I remember going by coach to the swimming baths with the school. I tried so hard to learn to swim but it wasn't happening, anyway when we broke up for the summer holidays i went to the same pool with my cousin and i learnt to swim ☺ and i went on to win certificates for swimming too later on.

    In the film the Full Monty Gerald says about when he went on swimming lessons at school

    All those bikini clad girls gave him a stiffy

    So he jumped in the deep end nearly drowning

    Same here lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    We used to get quite a few at school getting swimming certificates, (mostly girls), for doing length and width, and of course, the length one is more of an effort.
