Membership
The last 2 years concerns have been raised and discussed regarding membership fees having to be paid in the Christmas period, so a decision was taken at the AGM to change the renewal date this year to 1st December 2019 and members to pay 9 months membership (this has been adjusted on the database) then the following years membership fees will become payable on the 1st October, members insurance to SLSGB has to be paid on 1st January each year to enable activities to continue. This should ensure that everyone can continue training/ competing with their insurance covered.
Patrolling
The club has now been approved to provide Voluntary Lifeguard Patrols outside of RNLI lifeguarded hours, 6 of our members have so far qualified as Patrol Captains so we are now in a position to Patrol during the holidays, weekends and summer evenings when there is no RNLI patrol. Paul Skinner has taken the lead on this and we hope all members over the age of 16years will get involved so that we can set up a Patrol Rota, for those members who are not qualified Lifeguards we will be organising courses such as Coastal Surveillance and First Aid. If you are interested in being involved please contact Paul as we are planning for the Xmas and February half-term holidays.

Regards
Diane
