reports of kids swimming in the lake

Fri May 20 2022

by Caroline

We have been made aware of people swimming in our lake the last two evenings again. This is not only highly dangerous but they are also leaving litter. As a member of the sailing club please do ask people to leave and that swimming is not allowed. If at any point you face intimidation or receive abuse, don't hesitate to call the police on 101. Please keep us informed if you have to do either of these things. Thanks a lot for your help.

New BGA sample results taken on the 13th Feb 22. We seem to be pretty static at the moment, which it makes it even more important for us to keep trying to get more barley straw in the water. If anyone can help next weekend (26th Feb), you would be very welcome!

We are now testing fortnightly after guidance from the Environment Agency. This will hopefully show a bigger difference on each report. Both samples still contain the blue green oscillatoria sp. but the counts had gone down again slightly.
