Can you believe what an amazing local swimming pool we are going to have in a few short years?!
Yes - Hackney Wick - about 5 minutes walk from the train station - and you can be cooling down in the middle of summer under Zaha Hadid's stingray roof!!
Okay - so in these crunch credit days - we've lucked out on the kids leisure pool alongside it - but still this is going to be an incredible local facility for all of us to enjoy.
Please check out http://venues.london-2012.co.uk/Aquatics-Centre/ for the Olympic spin on it - but all we need to know is that we are going to be the envy of the rest of London!!
