Health and safety:

Blue-green algae - avoid contact with the lake water
Especially in warmer weather, bloom and scum forming blue-green algae can produce toxins. These are quite normal occurrences in nature but can be harmful to some wild animals and most domestic pets. In humans, they have been known to cause rashes after skin contact and illnesses if swallowed. Not all blue-green algae blooms and scums are toxic, but you can’t tell just by looking at them, so it’s best to assume they are. People and pets therefore should not come into contact with lake water where algae are present (on or near the shore) to protect their health.

Defibrillator outside Workshop
Thanks to the support by the RALPHH Charity (Robert Allen, Life Promotion & Healthy Hearts Trust, www.ra-lphh.org) there is now a defibrillator available at the club. It is located outside the club compound with access from the footpath, on the western wall of the workshop, just opposite the river moorings. Its what3words location is:  ///conga.claw.comic
To use the unit in an emergency, ring 999, give your location and follow the instructions given, which include the numeric code to open the box.
