Teaching Young People to Swim at West Beach

By Carol Walton

Newhaven sandy beach around 1960.

Ted Byrne was my husband's grandfather; he was a very keen swimmer and believed that all children who lived near the sea should be able to swim. He was at some time connected with Newhaven Town Council but I am not sure in what capacity. Does anybody remember Ted?
