Isn’t it great seeing the kids having fun ….

It’s brilliant seeing the kids having fun and splashing around in the paddling pool in the  back garden or at our own Tettenhall Pool here in Wolverhampton.

You can check out some photographs from the Tettenhall blog here of families enjoying themselves on just such a sunny day as today.

However, that sunny scene can change dramatically, as a family in one of our neighbouring boroughs has found this week when a youngster of just 15 was tragically drowned in open water.

We really want our children to be safe and sound and when they’re still young enough, we can do that by staying with them whilst they play.  The trouble is that there aren’t that many 14 or 15 year old lads and lasses that would welcome being with their mums or dads on the sunniest day of the year.

Please just take a minute to check out swimming.org website for ideas on how we can all teach our kids to respect open water and keep themselves safe.

Another excellent site of course is ROSPA – great water wise quiz …

Just keep safe everybody and enjoy the sunny days while we have them.

 

Until next time
