On Saturday 20th April Our team deployed out to Botany Bay with a pop-up water safety stand. The team shared key safety messages particularly about beach safety, the need to call the Coastguard for all coastal emergencies, swimming🏊‍♀️, kayacking🛶, surfing🏄‍♀️ and dog walking🐕. In addition to highlighting Swim Safe and lifeguard recruitment. A hugely successful day chatting to lovely beach and coastal visitors. Great to see one of our Respect The Water campaign stickers being stuck to a scooter.
