Being Pushed Into The Pool! - a Memory of Woking.

I only went to the pool a handful of times as a child, but have happy memories in spite of being pushed into the deep end (which led to years of fear of water which I happily conquered in my 30's!). I remember the surrounding parkland being lovely. I agree with the person who said the new pool wasn't quite as nice, although I spent many a good time in the Leisure Centre doing circuit training in the gym in the 1990s!

Wow, what a coincidence - exactly the same thing happened to me and I taught myself to swim at 31! I remember the pool being very cold - we used to walk there from Goldsworth School, Happy memories though.
