Topic: Swimming Pools

  Just wondered if there are any swimming pools near the Broads, just in case we are unlucky enough to have a rainy day when we are over in July, then our two boys could go for a swim.
They get that used to wearing their life jackets that I hope they remember to take them off or they will look a bit strange.

  I was at the outside pool at beccles in 1996 was unheated then and the surface of the water was covered in dead bugs mostly grass hoppers wasn't nice if you swalloed some water accidently proper deep as well I think.

  Thanks Steve and Vicky

Is it okay for just anyone to use Moores and Ferry Marina or do you have to be staying with them?

Anyone can use the Moores pool. Cost was £3.40 I think. Mooring in the basin is free for hire boats but there is a charge for private boats.
