The Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s (RNLI) Water Safety Team support the many volunteers in our region to help improve safety in and beside the water.
This summer, Lifeguards can’t be on every beach, meaning a heightened water safety risk to beach goers. They are asking us to help share some important messages to our children and their families.
It is anticipated that once restrictions further ease and the summer weather is here, people will head to the beaches and coastline to enjoy the sun, sea and time with friends and family. In a normal year, the RNLI helps thousands of people who end up getting into difficulty in or close to the water when doing these types of activities.
In the summer term, local teams of trained volunteers and Lifeguards usually visit St Michael's School, however, due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak they have not been able to engage with the school community as they normally would.
The RNLI has provided some resources to help stay safe this summer at the seaside. Click on the link below.
