Boscombe Indoor Twilight

Boscombe held its 2nd Indoor Twilight in the recent years, which was well attend and ran even smoother than last year. A big thanks to all those members and parents (to many to list) who made it possible for us to host this and a special mention to our Competitions Officer Sarah who co-ordinated the event.

Club AGM

The club this evening held the Annual General Meeting at the Coach and Horses in Wimborne.

The evening was well attended by members who enjoyed a buffet supper and a game of skittles.

During the AGM the Clubs Officers were Elected/Re-elected. The Club Officers make up the committee which runs the club, organises the training schedule, rotas, services the equipment and much more. They are all volunteers and mostly their work is done in the background in many cases on top of their responsibilities as Club Trainers.

We would like to thank the Club Officers for 2018 for their time and effort over the past year and a special mention to those Officer who are not standing for re-election this year; Andy “Hamish” Goral, Anthony Gawler & Jo Cook.

Boscombe Cadet receives Young Persons Certificate of Commendation

Boscombe Cadet Jack was last night presented with a RLSS Young Persons Certificate of Commendation for performing a rescue in which he towed a young girl who was stuck under an inflatable to the safety of the pool side.

His certificate was presented by RLSS UK President Ian Hutchings, who said in most case where a person gets in to difficulty it is the persons nearest that start the rescue and having the training to identify what was going on and react is crucial.

Boscombe Lifeguard Cadet Trainer James said “It is fantastic to hear of Jacks rescue several weeks ago, as it one again shows how the work that our young members put in to learning the skills can make a difference and save a life. As well as demonstrating to other Young Lifesavers that you don’t need to be a Grown Up or a Lifeguard to save someone, just have the training to be a Lifesaver/Rookie Lifeguard to save a life and stay safe.”
