Did you "Respect the Water" this summer?
During the first week in July there were a number of tragic deaths in the waters around the UK & Ireland; when the weather is hot risks like cold water shock can put even strong swimmers in danger. Around 150 people die in UK & Irish waters each year and over half never even planned to enter the water.

The first weekend in June saw RNLI Lifeboat crew volunteers called out to 149 incidents in one of the hottest weekends of the year. RNLI beach lifeguards were also busy patrolling 243 beaches around the UK.
Please help us support these brave voluntary lifeboat men & women and the beach rescue teams by supporting one of our fund-raising events during the autumn.

22nd October. Coffee morning at Hurds Hill, Langport, 10-30 until 12 noon
14th November. Coffee morning at 1, The Green, Long Sutton 10-30 until 12 noon
27th November. "William Hogarth; The Shakespeare of Painting" art lecture by Richard Kay of Lawrences. Wine & canap├ęs Long Sutton Village Hall 6-30 for 7-15pm. Tickets in advance (251057)
