The viewing gallery is currently closed at St
Michael's School Pool. We are waiting for the results
of a survey performed on the roof of the gallery to
declare if it is safe to enter the gallery. 11/03/13
Update: 16/03/13 There is still no news.
I think we can safely assume it is going to be closed
for the foreseeable future.
Swimming Helps Asthmatics
Swimming does not increase the risk of asthma or
allergic symptoms in children, according to an
extensive study by European scientists.
In fact, swimming is positively beneficial to children
with pre-existing respiratory conditions, according to
the study, published in the American Journal of
Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Detailed information on the health and activities
since birth of 5,738 children was used in the
study. Asthma UK said the results coincided with
their stance on swimming and young asthmatics. Dr
Elaine Vickers, the charity's research relations
manager said "This is the first study
examining the relationship between swimming and
young asthmatics where children have been
monitored over many years".
