A day of action to remind the River Thames Scheme that we as the Save the Lake Community are still here, and a national nod to the Government to make a difference, and protect our national bathing waters from the deadly issue of pollution and sewage on our waterways.

What you need to do: 

Sign up to the event, you can either join the “Float up” or join the land rally around the lake! 

Entry Options:

  • Swim Entry:  Please arrive swim ready for 9.30am and attend the debrief at 9.45am (Tow float mandatory wetsuit or no wetsuit!) These are available for free hire through Triton Outdoor - Onsite Shop 
  • Land Lover entry:  Please arrive for the de brief at 9.45am

The Float up will start at 10am with a de brief at 9.45am.


Address: Shepperton Open Water Swim, Ferry Lane, Shepperton, TW17 9LH

Parking on site is available but if you can cycle or use other transport please do.

We will ask all our swimmers old and new to enter the water for 10am and float for 10 minutes, each one of you swimmers will receive a Swim Cap to wear and a drone will go up into the air to photograph this show of unity to safeguard clean bodies of water. 

This is a national campaign for Surfers Against Sewage who have been monumental to help the campaign over the last year, we will join multiple more SAS Protest sites that day, all asking to protect our waters! 

Land Lovers, we will ask you all to link hands around the lake – we have worked out we need 2000 people to achieve around the total lake perimeter so send this link far and wide to your community groups, schools, sports clubs and anyone you think might like to gently protest about the sewage problem that the UK is facing. Lets see what we can achieve and make some noise! We know 2000 is a lot but you know…..lets give it a go!


The day also marks the start of Shepperton Open Water Swimming summer season, so join us for a social picnic after and lets set the season off right!
