The Day I Fell In The Paddling Pool - a Memory of Letchworth Garden City.

I was playing with school friends and we all had our bikes, I picked up a puncture. One of my friends lent me his bike, we used to race around the path that surrounded the pool. I took one of the bends too sharp, crashed, the bike and I went in the water! Thankfully apart from a bit of damage to the bike which I repaired, my friend took it all in good part. I trudged off home with my tail between my legs to dry out. On the way home I seemed to see everyone that knew me, it took weeks to live it down!
