It’s been a strange 18 months, which somehow makes such an achievement all the sweeter!
On 24th November 2021, 7 of our lifesavers were presented with their Distinction Awards – the highest award in lifesaving! To hold the award, you must achieve 3 Gold Level Survive and Save awards within the same 24 month period. A huge testament to our lifesavers’ skills, commitment and perseverance.
It’s been a tricky year navigating covid19, with so much cleaning, distancing, and finding new ways to learn and practice skills. All our lifesavers have shown John and I great patience and understanding, as we navigate the pandemic together.
It’s taken some head scratching, plenty of shouts of “distancing!”, and wow, did I mention… sooo much cleaning! But what a year it’s turned out to be! A lifeline for all. A teeny tiny piece of “normal” (or nearly normal). Laughter. Fun. Tears. Lifesaving!
John and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our lifesavers, and their families, for their help and support throughout the pandemic. It’s been a challenge but one that you have all have risen to magnificently. Whatever your achievement has been this year, well done, and see you at the pool!
