Sadiq Khan – 2022 Comments on Cool Spaces in London

The comments made by Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, on 17 June 2022.

London in summer can be delightful but as temperatures rise it is vital we look after our own health and that of our friends and neighbours.

The people most at risk are the most vulnerable Londoners, including the elderly, those living alone, those with chronic or severe illnesses.

Common sense precautions can save lives so please stay hydrated and take advantage of London’s 4,000 free refill locations, 100 new water fountains, stay out of the sun either at home or in one of our Cool Spaces and avoid travelling at the hottest times of day if at all possible. With more places to keep cool and top up on free water than ever before, we are building a better and greener London for everyone.
