September 2017 ~ Survive and Save take to the Sea!
As part of the Survive and Save Beach Award, we took our group to Summerleaze beach to try out their rescue skills and to learn about Beach Safety. Parents and instructors were amazed at how brave the children were as in true ‘Devon weather style’ it was not the calmest of evenings! The sea was very rough and wavy and as we arrived the lifeboat was being launched on a rescue mission! However, we managed to find a calm part of the beach and pictured below and right are our brave Life Savers practising their skills! Well done Everyone!
October 2017 ~ Our First Rookie Gala!
On Sunday 8th October we invited Bovey Life Saving Club and Okehampton Otters to us for our first Rookie Life Saving Festival. We had a fun afternoon of life saving based races to include towing a manikin, rope relays, throwing rescues, body boarding and a rescue tube relay to name a few. Pupils from our Survive and Save group who are working towards their young leader or assistant life saving instructor qualification assisted with the starting races, time keeping and setting up each race. Everyone had an enjoyable time and the friendly competition was a great experience for all involved.
