28:31This week on the Propulsion Swimming Podcast we are joined by Swim England CEO, Jane Nickerson MBE to help us answer all of your questions about how the current Energy Crisis and Cost of Living increase is going to affect swimming and the leisure industry in the UK. Jane was one of the leading campaigners to reopen pools after lockdowns and is now leading the charge to get more support and funding for Leisure facilities in the current crises. We ask Jane why it's so important the Government helps fund the energy bills Leisure Centres are currently facing, and how everyone can best support the #SaveOurPools campaign!
