Retiring Kelso Swimming Pool manager Jim Currie receives a presentation from Provost Fiona Scott and youngsters Hannah and Sean McGlasson on behalf of SportsKelso and the local community.

Hannah and Sean presented Jim with a framed swimming poster to congratulate him on his 39 years of service. Jim started working at the pool the year it was opened and two years later, in 1975, was promoted to pool manager. SportsKelso committee members and town councillors were in attendance, and wished Jim all the best for his much-deserved retirement.
