Such a story came to light recently about Harpers, a private company which runs Sports Centres on behalf of councils in the South-East. Harpers have decreed that floats (used by people to help them swim and not drown) should be banned unless used only during paid lessons.
It seems that some kid managed to almost choke on a float (why was that kid eating the float in the first place?).
Anyhoo, Harper's pool in the sports centre owned by Wokingham Borough Council at Lower Earley are happily following this decree and even ban adults from using floats.
I have to ask, how stupid are children these days to consider munching on a float (to the point of choking themselves) to be a pleasurable activity?
Why do Harpers believe that adults would do the same?
Or could it be something to do with the fact that floats are allowed, but only if used during a PAID lesson?
