River Swimming – Good or Bad?


Children swimming in the river at Thetford, August 28, 1964

The promise of summer is just around the corner.


Did you enjoy happy summer days like this?


If you did you probably still do when you get the chance, but in the UK we are facing resistance when it comes to river and lake swimming.


No one wants a happy day to end in tragedy, but with good education – outdoor swimming can be fun.


Lets all swim safe this summer!
