1) Editorial


Many of Bulawayo's Baby Boomers will remember the legendary Borrow Street Swimming Pool. It was indeed the focus of our young lives as children in Bulawayo in the forties, fifties, sixties and seventies.

Remember that amazing tang of chlorine that pumped out of that massive filtration system at the back of the pool grounds. Remember the tall tall trees that housed those smelly herons who pooped on your swimming towel

Remember those shiny red, blue and yellow change room doors, row upon row of them, all painted with brilliant gloss paint.

These were forbidden to us all until we reached sixteen I think it was, maybe thirteen, and only then were you privileged to use them Until then you had to contend with the communal change rooms at the far end of the change room block.

Remember those eternally wet floors, always soaking as we raced in and out with the zest of childhood to collect whatever we needed from the cubicles.

They were tiny cubicles with but a hook on the back of the door and a slatted bench the width of the cubicle.

At one time we were allowed keys to the cubicles but as sanctions hit us and keys became costly, we had to search for the enormous change room attendant, who would begrudgingly slop along and open the door for us.

My own personal love affair with Borrow Street pool began when, as Coghlan Infant School Children, we would line up in pairs in a long plumbago blue crocodile, and walk the four blocks to the pool for swimming lessons.....

And then as we became fully fledged swimmers, Mom would allow Gavin and I to go to the pool ON OUR OWN !!

Hours, days, weeks, months were spent in teeth chattering bliss from the very first day of September every year until the end of April.

The school holidays were sheer bliss, we would form a rowdy queue outside those turnstiles, armed with the tickey to get in and one and six for a coke and packet of crisps.

It was there that we fell in love with those pink marshmallow fish and those yellow soft candy bananas. It was there that we used to munch on those long liquorice sticks or those liquorice rulers that you could wrap around your finger and watch them go black..

After three hours of swimming until one's fingers went white and wrinkly, we would flop down on those deliciously warm brown sandstone blocks, cover ourselves entirely with our swimming towels, and with teeth chattering furiously, would warm ourselves up with anecdotes and sun, until it was time to go back in the pool again.

Marco Polo was a favourite game, diving off the one meter and three met boards was just the most exciting thing you could ever do, and there was always a senior at the bottom of the boards to ensure law and order was maintained.

The kiosk was heaven, coke floats, ice cream, those little black shiny balls that would last for at least an hour if you sucked on them slowly, and those giant yellow balls that would not quite fit in your mouth and were oh so chewable.

The baby Pool was quite a new addition and was reserved for the under sixes. But when the superintendent was not looking you could sometimes sneak in and belly crawl from one end to the other to get warm.

The Superintendents name was Mr Meal and my memory served me right his son Louis took over for a while.

Remember we used to get chased out though during the lunch hour so the nice people could sun themselves in peace and quiet. Then we could go back at about three when the sun was not so fierce.

Of course the piece de resistance was when they had "night swimming" during the very hot season. That was absolute bliss, nothing will ever feel as magic as those special balmy Rhodesian evenings ever ever again.

I have posted some pictures on the website of the Borrow Street Pool.


Recently, giant changes were made to accommodate the All Africa Games. A gigantic new warm up pool was installed, and several major changes made. Sadly the trees wherein the storks nested are no more, but life goes on come what may..


Despite the challenges the entire world has faced this year.. Christmas has not been cancelled!!
For the 9th year running Island Hospice and Healthcare Bulawayo Branch will be holding Light A Light for Hospice on Friday 27th November 2020 at Zonk'izizwe Shopping Complex, Bradfield from 5:30pm to 8pm.

Please join us for an evening of music, poetry and performance art.
We will also have the usual exciting stalls with delicious eats and drinks on sale and lots of Christmas gift ideas starting from 3pm.
Please purchase your memento in remembrance of a loved one lost this year or previous years and have their personalized Angel on the tree for the duration of the festive season.

As the curfew has been relaxed to 10.00 p.m., the starting time for DVDs is now 5.30 P.M.

The Note, the Academy coffee shop, is open and is available for take-aways and deliveries as well as light meals before evening DVDs..

THURSDAY 26 NOVEMBER AT 5.30 P.M. SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Carriages: 8.00 p.m.
Young Han Solo finds adventure when he joins forces with a gang of galactic smugglers and a 190-year-old Wookie named Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium. In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the perfect vessel, the Millennium Falcon, for the dangerous mission that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.
A bright and breezy sideshow adventure makes up for its overly frantic pacing with a charismatic central turn from Alden Ehrenreich - strong enough to make us want to see even more of him in Solo mode. [Empire]
With Solo: A Star Wars Story, director Lawrence Kasdan has maintained his reputation by delivering yet another great film. Solo is arguably the most action-packed film of the Star Wars franchise and has plenty of surprising twists. [Metacritic]
Solo is a swashbuckling success, a space adventure that pays homage to the DNA of the original films while carving out its own unique space in the canon. It's a sheer delight [The Verge]
Admission: US$1.00 [free to Film members]

FRIDAY 27 NOVEMBER AT 5.30 P.M. BEETHOVEN: FIDELIO Carriages: 8.20 p.m.
'Of all my children, this was born in greatest travail", Beethoven said to Anton Schindler, speaking of his only opera, Fidelio. Composed over a period of nearly ten years, from the first failure in 1805 to the final version of 1814, this romantic drama underwent many reworkings. The libretto was inspired by an actual incident from the French Revolution, in which a woman dressed as a man was hired as a prison gaoler and managed to free her incarcerated husband. The dramatic art of this magnificent work, which deals with liberty, faithfulness, idealism and justice, holds a universal value.
Bernstein, who conducts with all his heart, by 1978 Bernstein was God in Vienna. The Vienna Philharmonic play superbly for a conductor they had come to love. Otto Schenk's staging remains a marvel of sensible action, pertinent handling of the singers and clarity of action - no updating, no silly ideas, just straightforward, unobtrusive direction. [Gramophone Classical Music Guide]
Leonard Bernstein 'had a special rapport with Beethoven's opera and indeed with Vienna, where Otto Schenk's production is given further conviction by a top-quality cast. [BBC Music Magazine, May 2007 *****]
This was without a doubt my greatest experience in opera this year.
Although it dates from 1978 I was overwhelmed by this production. [Amazon] Admission: US$1.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
THURSDAY 3 DECEMBER AT 5.30 P.M. WANTED Carriages: 8.00 p.m.
Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is an office worker whose life is going nowhere. After his estranged father is murdered, he meets Fox (Angelina Jolie), who recruits him into the Fraternity, a secret society of assassins which takes its orders from Fate itself. Fox and Sloan (Morgan Freeman), the Fraternity's leader, teach Wesley to tap into dormant powers. Though he enjoys his newfound abilities, he begins to suspect that there is more to the Fraternity than meets the eye.
Visually astounding with a breakneck pace that rarely let's up. It's exciting, innovative and enjoyable, but most of all it's fun. Exactly how an action movie should be delivered. [Rotten Tomatoes]
'Wanted' is a bold, burly knockout action film that's immensely stylish and superbly shot, but it's also astonishingly violent and graphic. [New York Times]
A 12-armed heavy-metal drummer of a movie, kicking and flailing through two hours of the impossible. The car chase of the year. [New York Post]
Admission: US$1.00 [free to Film members]

Two outstanding young musicians play music by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and others.

19) Seeking Friends

I was sent your letter by an old dancing friend of mine Joy Taylor. We both danced at Macdonald Academy of Dancing . I and my Sister Tanya danced from the age of 3 and I danced right up till 1984 .I have the fondest memories of my dancing childhood in Byo. Our curtain calls, mum sewing costumes, dancing with Vincent Hantam and the Byo City Ballet Co tours. Fantastic times! I competed in the Cyril Beaumont Bursary in CT against I think it was Sandy Ashwin I went to UCT Ballet school and then joined CAPAB 1986 to 1989. I was in the company at the same time as Nicollette Loxton.
Thank you for your letter bringing back wonderful memories as I read the names.
Warm Regards
Juliet Hoenck nee French-Constant
