Colin, one of our long time members came to the pool yesterday in this historic tee shirt. Date of issue unknown! If you have other examples please send a picture!

Below is another Tee shirt, on a Carlsberg theme, designed by another long term member Francis’s son.

Jesus Green Pool sauna finally gets switched on.

With 38 days left in the current season, today marked the  inauguration of the sauna, proudly standing where the original cafe once stood. Today was a day of free entry. The sauna is now enclosed in it’s own area with wooden palings and has it’s own little gate.

Better have decided to charge, swimming season ticket holders an extra £2 for a twenty minute session identified with a rubber band, it’s unclear to me how will this will work in practice, unless a ‘lifeguard’ gets stationed at the picket fence. Day swimmers can get a swim+sauna ticket for £6.50 or maybe it’s going to be £6.80 🙂

It’s an interesting idea, time will tell if it gets used, it’s already been vandalised once by the night raiders so doesn’t bode to well 🙁
