Peter McCarthy, who has been a member of Hastings and St Leonards Voluntary Lifeguards for three years, has become a trainer for the club.
He has not only achieved his own lifesaving and lifeguard qualifications but has also become a representative on the club’s management committee and a valued member of the team that provides open water safety cover for local sea events.
The club put Peter forward to receive the Royal Lifesaving Society’s Young Lifesavers Award for Sussex. Peter was presented his award recently at The Guildhall in London.
Anyone interested in joining the club should contact Di Cooke, telephone 07970 424669 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
