13 August Beach Report from CSO John Turner:
We did over a hundred interventions, mostly sups, inflatables and beach activity re off-shore winds etc This does not include the education stuff and badges issued to children which must also be 100+
We also received over £100 in donations. Bearing in mind this is a proper family beach without much on the water it was a great result so thanks again.
