Billingham Forum Lifesaving Competition

Lifesavers from NSVL took part in the Billingham Forum Lifesaving Competition on Saturday 25th January.  For most of our lifesavers this was their first time at a Lifesaving competition, so it was an opportunity to have a go at something new and try their hand at speed lifesaving events including obstacle swims, manikin carries and manikin tows.
