How do I delete templates in Pages '09?

I am using Pages '09, I created a template and have decided to delete it because I need to totally redesign it.

Can someone tell me how to delete the darn thing?

I searched the help menu, tells me how to save one, make changes etc, but nothing about deleting it.

Thanks so much.

Here is the key if you are using Lion.

If you are running Lion, the user's library folder is hidden.
From the Finder, open the menu "Go to" with the option key depressed to be able to trigger the Library folder.

Worked like a charm!

In the process of trying to follow the steps that simsaladimbamba provided, I created yet another template.

Very very frustrating!!!!!! Nothing should be this hard, almost making me wish I never went to Mac!
Did you go to /Library/Application Support or
Did you go to /Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support ?

On the Finder menu bar, click on Go, then press and hold Option key, click on Library.

Basically doing this shows the hidden files.

From there I clicked on Application Support, iWork, Pages, Templates, My Templates.

All your templates will show, highlight and move to trash.
