  • RNLI Water Safety Session:
    There is no charge from the RNLI whose volunteer runs the session. The Council will just need to find a suitable venue (e.g. Village Hall) and promote the event (e.g. to the local school, pre-school and on their website and email distribution list).
    The session is interesting and informative and delivered in a fun way that was easy for children to understand; they have a chance to sit in a dinghy and also dress up as a lifeboat man including the helmet and wellies!
