RE the Stewponey Lido story in The Bugle (April 24 edition).
Growing up in Gornal Wood in the late 1950s I remember trips from Red Hall Junior School for swimming lessons at the Stewponey open air pool. I obtained my yellow badge for swimming a width of the pool. It could be rather cold (an understatement!) on some visits. I also recollect visits to a packed pool on sunny summer days.
