‘Splashmob’ at Kings Cross Pond

Earlier this week, around 50 keen swimmers met at the Henry Moore Statue, King’s Cross in their swim wear and paraded to the pond for a swim.  A celebration of the much loved open air pool which is due to close later this month.    ‘TV doctor’, Chris Van Tulleken and members of the Serpentine Swimming Club were out in support.  Temperature 11 degrees celsius.  Photographs by Fiona Campbell.

    I think I’ll stick to lunch by the Med, but I think you are all very brave.
    Going to a Catalan hen/stag dinner tonight and then a big wedding on Saturday.
