   The risks of swimming or paddling in the lake    July 4, 2018

The Parish Council does not allow use of its land to access the lake for swimming or the launching of any boat, canoe or other craft.

There have been fatalities in the lake in the past and swimming there carries significant risk.  In recent years there has also been significant concentrations of toxic algae in the lake, which carries additional risks for bathers, paddlers, or even for household pets entering the water.

Visitors are asked therefore not to enter the water for their own safety.
