Swimming Lessons

A Memory of Burgh Heath

I remember swimming lessons at the Galleon, laying in a 'cradle' that was held by a long pole that the teacher let go of when she thought you wouldn't sink !!! I also remember how freezing cold the water was, the fountain at the end of the pool that we used to play in, AND I remember my sister Frances getting her elbow stuck in the side of the pool !
