The toilets at the pools thread, as often is the case, has meandered onto other issues.
The issue of children wearing tee shirts arose as it was felt this might be unhygienic. Others felt that it was right for children to wear tee shirts in the pools to protect themselves from the sun.

I doubt many people are unaware of the harmful effects of too much sun.

There was another piece in the same magazine where the writer mentioned how she had been saved from the punishment of another summer's holiday sun on her face.
