Lifeguard Patrols This Weekend

What seems clear with the continuing good weather is that people may continue to flock to the beaches.

We have been asked by The strategic lead for Devon & Cornwall Police response to Covid-19, whenever possible this weekend, could our Lifeguards be active on beaches to provide encouragement to the public to support government advice (essential travel only, stay at home, only one form of exercise a day with a member of your household)

Lifeguards should wear appropriate lifeguard uniform, must be polite and helpful but will have no legal authority or enforcement capability. If asked who they represent they should say Surf Lifesaving GB and that their activity has been requested by the Strategic lead for Devon & Cornwall Police.
