COVID-19 - our Statement

Our priority is keeping people safe in the sea and around our coast as it always has been. At a time when emergency services are already stretched we ask everyone to follow government advice. The RNLI is asking everyone to carefully consider the need to go to visit the beach, the coast or go into the water in case they get into difficulty. If you do choose visit the coast the RNLI water safety advice is;


  *   Take care if walking near cliffs - know your route and your limitations
  *   Check the weather forecast and tide times
  *   If going afloat, carry a means for calling for help and always wear a lifejacket
  *   If you fall into the water unexpectedly FLOAT TO LIVE. Fight your instinct to thrash around, lean back, extend your arms and legs, and Float
  *   In any coastal emergency dial 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard
