The talk will include vital information on tides, waves and rips, cold water immersion and what to do if you get into trouble or see someone else in trouble. Some of Cromer's volunteer lifeboat crew will also be present and happy to answer any questions.

The talk will be given by Liam Fayle-Parr, RNLI lead in Water Safety for the North and East, and also a cold water swimmer himself. It will be a great opportunity to find out more about water safety if you are a sea swimmer, or thinking of sea swimming. It is also a chance to meet some of the volunteer crew and find out more about what they do and how they save lives at sea.

The talk will take place in the Education Room at the Henry Blogg Museum, The Rocket House, The Gangway, Cromer NR27 9HE, from 10:30 to 11:30am.
