Re: Vange swimming pool
Yes, I remember it too. I think you had to go past Johnson's wood yard. I seem to remember there was a shop that sold teas and ices nearby. I think the swimming pool was filled by the creek. There was a springboard and a basic waterslide. I think it closed after a while because me and my brothers had to go use the 'sidepools' to swim in. There were fairly evil places to swim in, but you couldn't really swim in the creek because it was just too muddy.
