Take to the waves...

Everyone loves spending time at the seaside. Especially in the hot, Summer months when they can paddle, swim and frolic around in the water with their families. But how many of us actually know what to do if we were to get into trouble?

Local holiday letting agency Suffolk Secrets started something incredible last Summer. They joined forces with the Waveney Surf Life Saving Club to bring about a series of free ‘Junior Lifeguard Camps’ for children aged 7-14.

These one and a half hour fun sessions took place on Lowestoft and Southwold beach and are based on the Surf Life Saving GB Surf Cadet programme, providing the children with the tools and knowledge to be safe in and by the sea.

Each session saw the children paddling on rescue boards and body surfing, while providing education about rip currents, waves and other dangers. The children were also able to play fast-paced and exciting beach games, both in the water and on the sand.

Children who took part received a goody bag and a certificate and were visited by the RNLI‘s ‘Stormy Stan’.

What an incredible event it was too! The kids absolutely loved every second of it and it gave them such invaluable skills which would last them a lifetime.

All we want to know now is where we sign up for this year’s sessions!
