RNLI lifeguards start peak season beach patrols in Suffolk and Norfolk
Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeguards will start their peak season patrols on beaches in Suffolk and Norfolk from tomorrow.
The lifeguards will commence their seasonal service at Southwold south, Lowestoft north, Sheringham east, West Runton, East Runton, Cromer west, Hemsby and Great Yarmouth.
The charity’s lifeguards, who operate on behalf of North Norfolk District Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council, will be at their posts from 10am to 6pm daily until September 9.
Luke Swift, RNLI lifeguard supervisor, said: “Following a comprehensive training programme the charity’s lifeguards are in peak condition and they’re really looking forward to returning to their posts.
“We always advise people to visit a lifeguarded beach as, whatever the weather, we’ll be there to offer friendly safety advice such as always to swim between the red and yellow flags and information on tide times.
“It’s great to see visitors enjoying the coast safe in the knowledge that if they do get into difficulty we’ll be there to help.”
The charity is running its national water safety campaign Respect the Water to help people stay safe throughout the summer.
