Families are being reminded of the dangers of letting children play around water this week, as part of a national life-saving campaign.

Drowning Prevention Week is being supported across our region. In Hertfordshire, the County Council will be distributing leaflets with advice for parents on how to keep their children safe. More than 400 people drown in the UK every year.
