Most swimmers, parents and coaches who were present found the talk to be both interesting and informative.

Knowsley Leisure Centre have introduced a new system for the lockers - you need to either bring a padlock - or buy one at reception.
A 40mm padlock is recommended, with a 6-8mm wide shackle.
Apparently people were wondering off with the keys keeping the locker for their own personal use.
