Malcolm Skinner’s memories of the pool
These pictures are courtesy of Malcolm Skinner (and below is one of his swimming certificates!)
Malcolm recalls his swimming lessons there as a child with the school.
All the schools in Abergavenny used to use the pool for swimming lessons from Monday to Friday morning, with different time slots from March/April for each one. They used to compete with other schools at their local swimming pools. Malcolm’s mum also worked at the Lido.
Following are some press cuttings that he collected over the years as well.
