Unknown Photographs

Not sure what these photographs are or from what year so any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!  If someone can tell me the year or anything more about them I’ll move them to the appropriate section. Names would be really useful to add.

Strange swimming event...
“Strange swimming event” was known as The Greasy Pole.  Anyone brave or foolhardy enough to try it was required to attempt to navigate their way from the poolside along the pole which had been greased and either remove from or place a peg at the other end of the pole without coming to grief and ending up in the pool.   Needless to say, many tried but few succeeded.
