Stimulating Swimming Sessions - a Memory of Abbots Bromley.

My twin & I attended The School of S.Mary & S. Anne in Abbots Bromley from 1960-1968; two younger sisters joined us later. Swimming lessons took place in this unheated outdoor pool during the summer term. I well remember divesting our warm uniforms, in the covered changing room alongside the pool, with the wind whistling through the large gaps at both head and ankle level - chilly! Yet, re-watching silent home movies with my elderly father just last week, there are many scenes of weekend swimming sessions, when our families were able to join us, which only show laughing happy faces enjoying this old pool.

I don't suppose you remember two sisters by the names of Hilary and Anna Foulds do you?
My mum and my aunt who were boarders at the school around that time.
All the best
