I remember going to Maria rogers house in clare road and climbing over her fence to get to the pool, i seem to remember it was not a sunken pool but you had to climb up some steps to get into it.
That must of been about 1976 ish

Yeah, it was not sunken. I remember the freezing cold outside changing rooms (just some fences!)..
I was in Miss Earlands, Miss Mitchell, Mr Ethringtons classes....loved it there! Remember playing in the line of conifers on the field. They were only about 6ft tall them...now they are massive trees..

I was in miss Earlands class, she took the really young ones, from about 5 upwards,
Our class was one of the pre-fabs which overlooked the play ground around the back, i cant remember her name, we used to climb underneath the pre-fabs, we had a camp there. from the neville side entrance, as you came up the path, up the hill there was a row of trees on your right, behind them was the playing field and the swimming pool was tucked up around the back.
I was in, i think, mr Barons class
I have not been back since i left, in about 1977ish

Ex miss wallands, I believe we must have gone to school together. Same teachers, same era..... The pool hasn't changed one bit apart from the fenced changing areas are now proper changing rooms. As for the rest of the school very little has changed. Quite nice going back in there with my children. Brings back lots of memories.

I was quite fond of the guy. But Boris is, of course, behind the serious over-coverage; it is a welcome distraction from travel... more
