Swim England chief executive Jane Nickerson has expressed her ‘dismay and frustration‘ at the Government’s failure to help millions of people return to swimming pools.

 

It was originally believed that pools across the country would be allowed to reopen from 4 July as stated in the latest phase of easing the lockdown restrictions.

However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has only given the green light for pubs, restaurants, hair salons, cinemas and museums to open for business once again.

Swim England has now launched an #OpenOurPools campaign calling for the decision to be reconsidered immediately.
