Members may have seen the reports in the press and on television regarding contamination of inland water due to the prolonged hot weather.

Due to the health risks the activities on the lake for the Funday on Sunday 22nd July have been cancelled. The lake will still be open for normal sailing.

It is suggested the following procedures are followed:

  • All users of the lake should be aware of the dangers and use the lake at their own risk.
  • Shower in fresh water (shower by the pavilion) after use and wash hands and clothing and if any water is accidentally swallowed, then the mouth should be washed out at once. The same applies to any eye contact with lake water. I would not advise anyone with an open wound to use the lake.
  • Dogs should be kept away from the lake for the time being for their own safety. 

If you have any further questions please contact the Warden or email me at
