Lifeguards are needed


The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is looking for people who are interested in becoming lifeguards in East Lindsey.

The charity, in partnership with East Lindsey District Council, will again be providing the lifeguard cover on Skegness, Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea beaches during the summer.

A key part of a lifeguard’s job is to spot dangers before they develop and 95 per cent of the role is preventative.

They offer friendly and helpful advice, ensuring that people have a safe and enjoyable visit to the seaside.

RNLI lifeguards receive comprehensive on-going training, meaning that they are equipped to treat everything from minor cuts and bruises through to performing major first aid and lifesaving rescues.

The charity will be running a lifeguard course for suitable candidates in Skegness from May 26 to 31
