Water safety advice

If you are new to open water swimming, ALWAYS head to an approved open water swimming venue. Contact them in advance to see if they offer beginner friendly sessions or tuition.

There are a host of local swimming instructors that can assist adults either returning to the water or swimming for the first time. It's never too late to learn!

Stay out of the open water in the District - in particular the canals and Saddington Reservoir.
