Get Safe 4 Summer - Media and Photo Call

The Littledown Centre operated by Bournemouth Borough Council has been selected as one of two leisure facilities in the South West to host the regional Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Get Safe for Summer Campaign event.

To ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer, youngsters need to be aware of the potential dangers that can lie in our local open waters.
