The North Eastern Rotary Clubs organise an annual "Games for the Disabled" event at Eston Sports Academy near Middlesbrough. NSVL members have been involved in this event for a number of years and this year was no exception.
NSVL have entered a team into the Regional Lifesaving Championships on 14th September. The competition involves a line throw, swim and tow, aquatic initiative and life support initiative. Members of our Survive and Save classes are taking part in the junior paired events, with Paula and George competing in the individual events. Paula and Donna will be running training throughout the summer.
This is the first lifesaving competition NSVL has entered in a number of years, so we are really looking forward to starting some training, having a go and seeing what's involved.
Joe and Malcolm kindly ran a Heartstart course for five members of Red Seal Rescue on 11th April, with the help of Rookie Instructor George Redfern-Lown. Red Seal provide safety cover for a number of local events, and currently have a full active membership.
