The Stripes At Lydney Baths
When was the last time you went to an Outdoor Swimming Pool? Mary Rose is a great supporter of our local “Bathurst Pool” in Lydney and, since it was saved from extinction about 20 years ago, the sterling voluntary efforts of many enthusiasts like her really have turned everything around. Now in 2018 it is once again an established attraction: there are solar panels heating the water, astro turf surrounding the pool, a Queens Award for Charity (coming on June 30th) and…. it now has the most artistically painted entrance block of any swimming pool this side of Wonderland. Mary Rose offered to do what she does best and the Committee voted “Yes Please” So here she is at work painting a variation on the stripes theme which makes each alternate stripe look a little like a gold streamer-ed MayPole. The picture on the right is Mary Rose’s other recent painting project…. The”Osteria” in Venice where her exhibition was recently held.
