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.
As ever, NSVL celebrated the end of the year by running into the North Sea from their base in Whitley Bay. This year's swim was the last to be hosted from our current base on Central Lower Promenade due to planned renovation works starting next year, so swimmers donned t-shirts quoting "Last swim of the prom" to mark the occasion.
NSVL will be running a Beach Lifeguard course on weekends from 14th February 2015. Pre-requisites and course details can be found in the Beach Lifeguard section.
Dates: 14th/15th, 21st/22nd February, 7th/8th, 14th/15th March
Times: 10:30am-7:30pm Saturdays, 12:30pm-5pm Sundays
NSVL have kindly been invited to take part in a short course lifesaving competition at the Billingham Forum on theSaturday 24th January 2015 (11am
start). We had a great day at this competition last year, with many junior members competing for the first time, so we are looking forward to getting a team together for 2015.
