  1. My thoughts go to the family and friends of this young man, and to the receptionist who tried to save his life. Hopefully this is the last this year and last year’s drowning figures are not repeated in our region. I offer a full package from initial health and safety reports and risk assessments to initial and regular ongoing training of lifeguards and first aiders in internationally recognised qualifications from the RLSS UK.
