We would like to re-assure our members, and visitors, that the Blue Green Algae currently affecting Rother Valley Country Park is not impacting on our water at Harthill Reservoir and all our sailing and swimming activities continue as normal.

We did have an outbreak in 2018, that was dealt with accordingly, particularly as it provides an increased risk to our Outdoor Swimming section. This year we have taken additional precautions to hopefully prevent its re-appearance, however should any suspicions arise that it may be present they will be investigated immediately and members informed accordingly.

There is currently the usual weed growing in the pond and we have a contractor booked to remove this within the next couple of weeks.

Happy sailing (and swimming!)
