Frozen waters

Frozen ponds, rivers and lakes can be very dangerous and are best avoided.

  • Make sure you children understand how dangerous it is to play on ice
  • Adults should set a good example by staying off the ice themselves
  • Dog owners should ensure they keep their pets on a lead so they are not at risk of falling in
