Have spent some weeks telling myself that I should start swimming again, as I am doing basically no energetic exercise at the moment. Finally got my act together to cycle over to Parkside this morning. It is now under the control of some sort of social enterprise, and has been revamped with a "changing village" (not sure what this is but probably full of children). Seems OK though I couldn't find any showers where you could actually strip off - only the poolside ones. Pootled up and down the slow lane for half an hour, and now feel glowing with health and virtue. Still redolent of chlorine, though - need a proper shower.
