As summer time is here, and we all start to slip slop slap there are so many things to be wary of. A friend of mine was at a 6 yr olds birthday party yesterday where another child nearly drowned, if you are going to a pool party with a pile of kids DONT DUMP AND RUN! stay with your child, as there can never be too many sets of eyes on the pool! Also please remember to slip slop slap! every bit of sun protection now is going to help our little ones when they grow up! Enjoy summer everyone xx

  • We need to be so care re the use of sunscreen. I heard of a Mum (I know her daugher) who got a melanona and didn’t notice it. The roots from it travelled into her liver.

  • An excellent tip. You certainly can never have enough eyes when watching small children

  • can i just add this…. i have neighbours that have a pool and just recently their daughter had some friends over. one friend had gone to the toilet, came out and slipped because she was still wet and banged the back of her head on the corner of a cabinet and died. it was so tragic but just another element that relates to pool safety. Making sure that you are pretty dried off before you go walking around. this poor gal was only young. such a shame

  • There was another child on the news this morning who nearly drowned and is in hospital. That’s so tyre, you can never have too many eyes on a pool.

  • So true. Summer can be the best season for some but so important to slip slop slap all the time & be extra careful with little ones around water, so glad it wasn’t worse. My 8 yr old, many yrs ago now slipped into a pool. Lucky there were lots of people, I had turned my back for not long at all, very scary. Have fun & stay safe :)
