It’s well recognised locally that since lockdown, beaches all along the local coastline have become busier as ‘staycations’ have gained in popularity.
And our own Pett Level is starting to be officially noted in lists of lovely places, and it has been declared one of the best beaches in Sussex in this recent article in the Sussex Express .
Yes, taking a bow at #3 in the list as the screenshot below shows …
So now the word is out there, we’re already preparing for what may well be a busy season along Pett Level and Rye Bay! Because it may be one of the best beaches in Sussex, but it’s not without its risks and hazards.
Which is why you’ll find our teams of volunteers regularly training. Since last year’s extremely busy ‘unlocked’ summer, we’ve maintained our twice-weekly training sessions to help our volunteers to stay #rescueready as the seasons progress.
Regular training as a team means we can prepare and practice across a range of rescue scenarios, beach problem possibilities and likely first aid needs, in all types of weather and light conditions.
It also means we can plan ahead in terms of beach awareness education and raising awareness of hazards on local beaches and drowning prevention.
If you’d like to volunteer – and train – with us, please message us or phone our boathouse to find out more!
