Daniel Zeichner MP visited Parkside Pool in the final countdown to indoor pools re-opening this Saturday 25 July.
Mr Zeichner found out about the new measures designed to keep people safe including booking a swimming slot in advance so physical distancing regulations can be maintained. Swim England has produced guidance detailing how people can get back in the water in a safe, controlled manner.
He said: “I’m delighted the Council have taken the plunge to re-open Cambridge’s pools as soon as possible. We all know how important exercise is and I’ve been inundated with emails from constituents asking when this day would come. Of course, swimming is not only a fantastic form of exercise for all ages and levels of fitness, it’s a life saving skill too.”
