As we enter a second lockdown, it’ll be more important than ever to look after our mental and physical health. That is why Clevedon Marine Lake will remain open for socially-distanced daily exercise.
Unlike open water swimming and watersports venues, Clevedon Marine Lake is a semi-wild spot more like a beach or park. It’s a relatively safe spot to swim, kayak or paddleboard compared to the sea and rivers, and it’s vital for the wellbeing of the community as gentle activity in and around water has been proven to benefit our mental and physical health.
If you visit the lake over the lockdown period, please be mindful of the government’s rules:
- Visit with members of your own household only
- You may meet with one person from outside your household
- Socially distance at all times
- If you swim, educate yourself on how to do this safely so that you don’t put the emergency services under any extra strain
- No dogs
- Don’t dive or jump in
- Don’t swim alone
