A few Lake users have now reported Bites appearing after their swims. They are coming from a small microbe that grows in lakes and rivers in the summer.
we recommend swimmers bring a bottle of fresh water to rinse off after their swim, dry off vigerously immediatly afterwards and go home to wash with soap and water.

We are taking the time to thank everyone who has come down and supported us. As a small social enterprise the first few years of business are really important, they can make or break a company.
So we reached the end of 2019 still standing, proud to be where we are and all that we have achieved.
It has been an absolute pleasure to bring more outdoor activities to borough that i didn't have access to growing up here!
So thank you to all our customsters, members, The Beckenham Bobbers and most importantly our staff team. We couldn't have done it with out all of you!
The Lake is Open! However the paddle area remains closed. We will be open throughout the bank holiday weekend 7am to 6pm. We are looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying the lake again.
