AGM 2014

The Annual General Meeting of North Sea Volunteer Lifeguards was held on Sunday 3rd November, and was attended by both senior and junior club members and parents.  Chairman Joe Welsh presented the Annual Report, which was complied by Donna Robson, and Treasurer Karen Farr presented the financial report.

Elections for committee positions then took place.  The trustee positions up for election this year were:

  • Training Centre Coordinator
  • Treasurer
  • Fundraising Officer
  • Social Secretary

In addition, the non-trustee positions available were:

  • Lifeguard Captain
  • Vice Lifeguard Captain
  • Competition Secretary
  • Youth Rep 

Karen Farr was co-opted by the committee to stay on for another year as Treasurer, and Sasha Babuji was co-opted to remain in the position of Lifeguard Captain.  Elliott Rogers has also taken on the role of Fundraising Officer.  If you are interested in any of the remaining positions we would love to hear from you, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Joe also shared news of the relocation of the club's beach base.  We have known for some time that the Central Lower Promenade is to be demolished, we have now received notice from North Tyneside Council that we have approximately six months to vacate our current beach base.  Joe and Donna have met with representatives from North Tyneside Council and are discussing options for relocation.  We are feeling positive that we will find suitable premises and are looking forward to the future.  In the mean time, we will be holding the last Boxing Day Swim from our current base in a few weeks time!  

A huge thank you must go to Donna and Karen for compiling the Annual Report and Financial Report.  This took a considerable amount of time and effort and both did a great job.  Thank you must also go to Jonathan Mills, who audited the accounts.
