This is SHOCKING, in 2012 of all years. New research by the ASA and Kellogg’s shows A THIRD of children leave Primary School unable to swim. Of those children unable to swim, NEARLY 40% have never been offered school swimming lessons despite it being a statutory element of the National Curriculum. Please watch this video and spread it across Facebook to help create pressure for this to change. — at UK.

Sadly – My first report of a terrible needless accident once again in 2012 – The weather is just becoming a little warmer but with such terrible rainfall all our river levels have risen – Once again lack of education and knowledge prevails.
Whenever there has been a deluge of heavy rainfall in any area where there is a river the water levels rise and cause waterfalls to be more powerful and the currents to be stronger.
Signage I feel is the way to go on a National basis in and around our rivers and waterways.
I also feel that people who have boats for hire should also offer lifejackets or indeed insist on people wearing them.
REMEMBER !! You CANNOT SEE how strong the current is beneath.
My heart goes out to this family x x x
