Water Safety

July 2019

Dear all

The Council have received a number of reports of young people swimming and climbing on the weir in an area known as Pebble Beach on the River Derwent, just below Alvaston Park. Although a lovely spot to enjoy the river, there are hidden dangers to those entering the river water including cold water shock, injury from unseen objects and slippery surfaces.

We would be grateful if you could spread the message to all your pupils just before the summer holidays, about the importance of water safety. Please can you remind all children, and parents/guardians/carers, of the dangers of entering the river and climbing on weirs. For further information on water safety please visit – https://www.rospa.com/leisure-safe…/…/children-young-people/

Hope everyone has a lovely and safe summer holidays.

Kind regards
