This is good...however if the cost of casual swimming the rest of the time is inhibitive for many. North of the county can keep it accessible so why not Salisbury?

In reply to Grampie,
"I am told..." implying you havent experienced it for yourself??
I do believe the main pool at salisbury is around 29 degrees C which is the recomended maximum temperature for fitness training and recreational swimming.

I have not been swimming lately as I have lost my mankini. Someone stole it off my washing line when it was drying off.

I was told it was cold by one of my children because his kids were shivering.
