RNLI Beach Safety

Our annual visit from local RNLI Lifeguards was both entertaining and informative. Andy Beswick is a local lifeguard many of us know and he can often be found lifeguarding on Poldhu or at Porthleven beaches. He said we did very well on remembering what the different beach flags mean. As responsible citizens we now need to make sensible choices when we’re enjoying our local beaches and going in the sea. Not all our beaches are lifeguarded and there are many dangers we need to be aware of such as; tides, wind directions, waves, weather, rip currents, the sun, wildlife, other people and equipment.
