Summer 2021 Starts at Pen-y-bont SLSC
After a long winter of lockdowns, Pen-y-bont SLSC members are happy to get back to the beach for training and patrols.
Our brilliant nipper and junior coaches have worked hard to get training up and running in line with government Covid guidance.
Also, lots of our junior and senior members are working towards getting their Level 2 and 3 lifeguard qualifications at the moment in order for them to be qualified to work for the RNLI or coach our sessions. Pen-y-bont’s voluntary patrols at Ogmore by Sea beach are also happening now, and we are proud of several members who have already performed first aid and rescues on the busy bank holiday weekend.
Pen-y-bont have been very fortunate to receive funding from various organizations over the past couple of months. The money has gone towards providing good quality, recognizable lifeguard patrol kit for members who volunteer to patrol Ogmore by Sea on the weekends. In no particular order, the club thanks: Admiral, Moondance Foundation, Welsh Water, KitBox Cymru, Community Council, and Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust. Stay cations and uncertain travel rules mean this summer looks (and already has been!) busy for our lifeguards, so this support is very welcome and appreciated.
