We are a voluntary organisation with the aim of safety in and around water, offering tuition and coaching in swimming, lifesaving and lifeguarding. We operate a voluntary lifeguard service on the local beach, and we compete in swimming and lifesaving. Our club is funded through annual membership, grants and funding for specific projects, fundraising events and competition entry fees and has national, British and European record holders in lifesaving sport in the pool. We aim to develop the open water elements. In lifeguarding, we’ve dealt with three major rescues in the sea using rescue boards and a commandeered jetski.
