RNLI lifeguard cover at Camber Sands extended to early September
In response to recent tragic events at Camber Sands, the RNLI has been working with Rother District Council to provide reassurance to the public by providing a temporary bank holiday RNLI lifeguard service.
Lifeguards are working alongside the existing local authority personnel.
The provision has now been extended until Sunday 4 September at Camber Sands. This will ensure extra peace of mind to visitors for the remainder of the school holidays.
The lifesaving charity provides lifeguard cover on over 240 beaches throughout the UK. RNLI lifeguards are there to provide safety cover and advice and we would advise anyone who is not familiar with the area to come and chat with the lifeguard.
