D is for Danger! (and how to avoid it this summer)

The sun is shining (at last), temperatures are rising (as best they can up North, anyway) and the incessant greenflies can only mean one thing: Summer is well and truly here – but are you ready? No, we don’t mean ‘bikini body’ ready. We mean that while your sunning, swimming, surfing or whatever you’re doing this summer, you and your children are confident and competent, and most importantly, completely safe in and around the water. So let’s start the summer check list:

Sun cream? Check
Shades? Check
Sand? Check
Knowledge about how to STAY SAFE when swimming in the sea? Ch… oh wait.

Maybe this last item on your check list isn’t QUITE as hot as the others. Don’t sweat: SwimNE are on hand with a handy downloadable presentation that will glide you through our tips on how to stay safe this summer. Are you and your family taking a dip over the holidays?

Ps. There’s even a super-fun quick quiz at the end so you can SEA (get it!?) what you’ve learnt.
