The Summer of 2019 was marked by record breaking temperatures across the United Kingdom. As the mercury climbed into the 80s and edged towards 90 in old money, huge queues formed at the public pools and swimming baths across the nation. There were even incidents where crowds fed up with the heat and the lines rushed the gates of the aquatic sanctuaries. The good news is, that as of today, the twenty-sixth of September, those at the end of the queue were able to make their final approach to the turnstile. Better late than never, so they say.
