Alan_at_Swim_Safe_Longsands_Aug_2017.jpg

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell today visited Swim Safe at Longsands to find out more about the lifesaving initiative.  Swim Safe teaches children aged 7–14 how to stay safe when swimming outdoors, which is often more challenging than swimming in a pool. The programme was created jointly by Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the charity that saves lives at sea.

This is the first time the programme has taken place at Longsands and it will also return to Sandhaven beach from 16 – 26 August.

The hour-long Swim Safe sessions are run by qualified swimming teachers and lifeguards, supported by a team of trained volunteers. The first 20 minutes covers land-based safety and then it is into the water for practical tuition. Wetsuits, swimming hats and tee-shirts along with and a free goody bag are all provided.  Children must be able to swim at least 25 metres to take part.

The Rt Hon Alan Campbell MP for Tynemouth, said: ‘We are very lucky to have some excellent local beaches and of course the river Tyne.  The reality is however, that our coastal waters can also be dangerous, so it is very important that children learn how to keep safe when swimming outdoors.  Swim Safe sessions are a free and fun way for kids to learn how to enjoy the water but, importantly, stay safe.’
