WHS/Wood Hall Baths Swimming Certificate 1967
WSPANE banner Wetherby High School - Wood Hall Baths Swimming Certificate 1967
submitted by Peter Boardman August 13th 2007
a certificate from 40 years ago. The pool was about -0 degrees and not plankton growing in the pool but sea-weed, and our hair was frozen on the coach when we went back to school.
I remember using the pool in Wood Hall (nr Linton) in 1968 when I was at St James and all of us singing Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da (?) on the coach on the way. It wasn't "Desmond and Molly Jones" though, it was "Gary Earle and Sarah Shaw". The instructor was a robust old girl with wire hair, if I recall rightly.
published on Facebook March 2016 and the general reaction was not very positive with " Brrrrrr! Cold and slimy." being a typical response
