We had a great time providing first aid cover for Bournemouth Hospital Charity‘s Reindeer Run along the seafront last night, there was 145 Registered runners and everybody made the finish line with no issues whatsoever!
Hope everyone is enjoying their festive periods and will be at Pelhams Leisure Centre this Sunday for training 5-7!
Further to our last email, we can now confirm that training will be held at Canford School on Friday 21st and 28th October and Friday 4th November 7-9pm. As Jeanette is away we are currently not allowed to use the pool without a Pelhams trained lifeguard. Apologies again for the change of location.
We hope to see you all on Friday,

Boscombe Lifeguards was down at Bournemouth Pier early this morning to spread the word of “Dont Drink & Drown” to several hundred survivors of the Bournemouth University Summer Ball who congregated for a photo on the beach.
The event was held in good spirits and volunteers from Boscombe Lifeguards distributed special branded bottles of water while spreading the word of Water Safety awareness especially after a night out.
A big thank you to all members who turned out to support this event.
From Sunday the 17th June all Sunday training will be held at the beach.
Please remember to bring Wetsuits, boots and a swim hat for use in the water and warm clothes to change in to after
