SWIMMERS at Renfrew Victory Baths certainly splashed out to celebrate St Andrew’s Day.

They took part in an Aqua Ceilidh with Scottish dancing in the pool.

The event was organised by Renfrewshire Leisure and as well as enjoying Scottish music being played on the pool’s sound system, the swimmers were entertained by six-year-old Hayley Carlton, from Renfrew, who gave them a demonstration of Highland dancing at the poolside.

Staff were dressed in kilts or tartan bunnets and the dancers in the pool also wore something tartan along with the bathing costumes.

And afterwards there were traditional Scottish refreshments of Irn Bru, shortcake and teacakes.

Joyce McKellar, chief executive of Renfrewshire Leisure said:

“The staff at Renfrew Victory Baths always go the extra mile to put on events to mark special occasions and involve the swimmers who come along on a regular basis.

“The poolside was festooned with Scottish flags and everyone had a great time, especially when they doing the Spray Gordons in the pool.”
