Water Safety

The time of year is once again upon us when the weather gets warmer, and everyone starts to relax and unwind for the summer.

Fresh water swimming has grown in popularity over recent years, with people searching high and low to find the perfect, secluded swimming spot whether it be a lake, reservoir or river.

Drowning Prevention Week, which takes place this month (18th – 26th June) aims to teach people how to stay safe near water.
