How fast is fast? How slow is medium? In response to the letter published last week regarding lane swimming at Romsey Rapids (March 8) I wanted to say, I like three lanes, rather than four. A swimming pool is hardly comparable to the lanes on a motorway and, having a wider lane, so that a faster than expected swimmer can pass a slower swimmer, or get out of the way of someone trying to do a bit of back-stroke, is a good idea in my mind.

There is now a huge number of people of all ages, fitness and abilities wanting to swim. What Romsey really needs is another pool.
