Plume School pupils Tom Amner, George Barton, James Harris and Kye Hedgecock are campaigning to bring Maldon’s beloved swimming lake back to the Promenade Park.

It closed after dad-of-two Kevin Gay, 47, hit his head on a submerged post while swimming in Marine Lake in 2002 and died.

The Standard asked readers on Facebook for Maldon’s forgotten gems - buildings, shops and landmarks that once were and last now only in memories and photographs.

See the Standard - out tomorrow - for memories, facts and pictures on the Embassy cinema, the valley amusments, Woolworths and more.

We now have a year round attraction created at a great cost which replaced a tawdry swimming hole used for at most a few days a year. The change down there is great.
