Outdoor Swimming Society Slated as Irresponsible

From The Harrogate Adviser:

“Founder of Riverside Awareness UK Lindsay Fitzhugh said: “You can’t be encouraging people to be swimming in these rivers. There have been deaths in the past because of the hidden whirlpools. The River Wharfe a very dangerous river.”

“The site is disgusting and the Outdoor Swimming Society is totally irresponsible.”
