North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club
North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club (NNSLSC) was formed in 2008 by a dedicated core of beach lifeguards to encourage volunteers to train and improve their lifesaving skills and enjoy the coastline safely. Since taking over premises on Cromer seafront, membership has quickly risen to over 50.
The club provides training, requalification and sports activities for 90% of the beach lifeguards on the Norfolk coastline and also provides volunteer lifeguards to cover a number of local events and community activities including youth clubs and watersports groups. The club has established a popular youth training programme, which enables junior members to achieve accredited certificates in water safety and coaching. Courses cover first aid, board skills, safety signal skills and rescue skills, as well as how to assess risks on the beach or at sea such as the presence of boats and tide movements.
In 2012 the club was awarded £3,000 from the Sheringham Shoal Community Fund to purchase a range of equipment to support first aid training and youth programmes
