This is a photo of some of the members of The Shiverers Swimming Club in the mid-fifties at The King Alfred Swimming Baths. The club was well named as the water was absolutely freezing.
The gentleman at the back 2nd from the right with the club badge showing, used to take us for life saving lessons, but his name escapes me. I am sitting on the poolside fourth whole person from the right. to my right is Geoff Atkins, and in the water 2nd from the left is Pete Thursby.
We all lived in Mile Oak Road Portslade but I haven’t seen either of them for fifty years! Do you recognise yourself or anyone else here? If you do please leave a comment below.
