Sad to hear they have demolished the old Grove Baths.  We used to go there for a bath once a week.  Never swam in the pool. :(

GIRL.  I had to go every Friday morning as part of my curriculum, bad for me as  my hair was very long and a pain in the ass to dry it remained wet for the rest of the day.  There was a kid called Greg who used to go every Saturday and would dive off the top diving board. He was awesome he didn't fancy me though so I worshiped from afar
LOL

A shame they have gone but with the new Grove Wellbeing facility just up the road, it was inevitable. That's where I learned to swim back in the 70s.My dad taught me and then got bullied into teaching a load of kids -" go on mister teach us how to swim mister". He was too nice to say no!  Nearly got run over on NQ St, running out of the baths too fast and straight across the road -lucky for me the bus driver was good at swerving!
Anyone know what is planned for the site?  Hope they don't just leave it to rot as there is too much of that round there.
