Beach base update

Most of our members and associates will be aware that due to the Coastal Regeneration plans for Whitley Bay seafront (which involves the Central Lower Promenade where we are currently based) our club is required to find alternative premises.


We have received news from North Tyneside Council that we must vacate our premises by the start of April, therefore from April we will no longer have a beach base.

NSVL wishes to ensure members that it will be business as usual for the club. We are working closely with North Tyneside Council to seek alternative long term premises, as well as temporary accomodation until such premises are found. We anticipate junior Summer beach sessions, life support sessions and lifeguard training sessions to run as usual, although this may require some moving about from week to week. Although this is not ideal, you have our assurance that our usual high standards of training and teaching will remain, and the sessions will only take place at locations with the approproate facilities.

We have been lucky enough to gain a huge amount of equipment since the club was formed in 1998, therefore it is going to take a lot of hard work in a short amount of time to prepare for our move.  If you are able to help out in any way, please get in touch with Donna or turn up on an organised work day (keep an eye on the calendar).  There are various jobs to be done, including boxing equipment / kit / books / training aids up; removing certificates & pictures from the walls; stacking chairs; bagging unwanted items; removing fixtures...the list goes on.

We am also looking for donations (or temporary loans) of boxes / storage crates-if anyone can help please get in touch or drop them off at the beach base any time between 10:00 & 16:00 Saturdays.  Similarly, if anyone is able to assist with transport to dispose of our unwanted items, please get in touch.

If anyone has any questions or concerns about the move, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
