Council pool "too cold" for children, claim parents

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Blackwater Leisure Centre Blackwater Leisure Centre

Parents claim a public swimming pool is too cold for their children.

Mums and dads took to the Standard’s Facebook page to say they have been unable to stay in the water long at the Blackwater Leisure Centre in Maldon.

Some claimed their children's lips have turned blue.

However, Leisure Connection, which runs the centre for Maldon District Council, said the temperature is set at 29C in accordance with guidelines.
