Ah yes, the communal showers... How well I remember them. Actually, what I really remember is the fact that the changing room was on one side of the corridor and the shower room was on the other. But they never used to close the outside door. So you used to have to either get your towel wet (there were never any hooks to hang anything), or indulge in a very short streak....And I liked the festival topical cartoons that got posted on the door... Cor, who was it that drew them???

I used to like using the big container they had set up for having a strip wash. You took a bowl, got water out of the the taps they had set up at one end, put it on the bench and had a wash. Worked a treat. It was communal (you took your chances as to whether there were blokes there or not) and was parked behind the social club. At a push, I suppose I could do that in my tent, now I have one you can stand up in...

Nothing wrong with using a watering can to shower with. We did that one summer when we were in the middle of taking the bath out and putting a shower in. We had a wee paddling pool to stand in and would take turns holding the watering can for the other... *G* It was almost fun!
