Oh Holly, i’m glad you said that – it was the Sturgess/Maynard/Dwyer annual Boxing day OUTDOOR swim. Everyone sort of dreaded it – it was the stripping off, putting your feet on icy concrete floor and getting into the pool . Once in ,it was fab .Helen and Rosie used to get very brave and get in and out , dive off the board and go down the kiddies slide until some baywatch babe blew their whistle. Then it was a case of dry off , heaps of biscuits , flasks of coffee and irish whiskey from the hip flasks. Emma gave me a particularly glam retro red rouched swimming hat , but cos i have more hair than john , used to get stolen and worn by him so he could stay in for longer than 10mins. Then there was the time the men saw James Cracknell nude in the shower………….
