"I can't believe I've been bullied out of my local swimming pool!"
My friend was laughing as she said it, but underneath the humour she had a serious point.
Anne is a keen swimmer and she trains regularly – but recently, not at her nearest pool. Why?
Because a group of swimmers began to run informal swim training sessions in the 'fast' lanes at her local pool.
"We're a friendly bunch," they told Anne, "and you're welcome to join our sessions – but you can't swim in this lane if you don't."
