It is that time of year again when we are having a bit of hot weather and some people are tempted to cool off by swimming in open water such as the lake in the Queslett Nature Reserve.
This is highly dangerous. There are under water obstructions, the water can be very cold and may well be contaminated.
The message is simple do not swim or paddle in the Queslett Nature Reserve. Allowing dogs to swim in the lake is also not recommended.
