If I remember rightly we'd drink Cow & Gate and it was a type of chocolate drink. I learned to swim there to. We had to do the swimming test each year to get the free pass but it was done from school. We went swimming every week from St Laurence's and walked there - strictly in a row and in pairs! I belonged to Northfield Swimming Club as well. Happy Days!Learnt to swim there earnt my free pass then during the summer holidays go all the time had to stand in line some times to get in to many kids, the café was over the front entrance door was it Horlicks we would drink ?
