We were delighted to be able to present one of our trainers, James Parkinson, his RLSS Certificate of Recognition from the 2015 Honours List.
James has been involved with NSVL for almost 16 years and has been heavily involved with RLSS activities at both club and branch level throughout that time.
On top of his day job, James is an experienced pool and beach lifeguard and TA, and is also dedicated an endless amount of passing on his knowledge to our junior members at Rookie and Survive and Save level.
In addition to this, in previous years, James has put in a lot of time and effort behind the scenes in his role as Secretary for both the club and the RLSS Northumberland and Durham Branch.
Congratulations and thank you James - we are lucky to have you.
