I asked, “Before the Sports Centre in early 1980’s, where did Blantyre folks go to swim? Hamilton? Bellshill? EK?”
I remember going to Bellshill baths in the 1970”s every Saturday morning. Memories of that included the huge steps at the entrance to the baths, the plastic changing room crates for clothes, the high dales, particularly cold water and of course the brilliant chips in the cafe afterwards and 5p space invaders games, the first time i ever saw a games arcade machine.
