DROWNING PREVENTION WEEK

19th - 26th June 2021 

enjoyleisure is proudly supporting Royal Life Saving Society’s (RLSS) Drowning Prevention Week.

Living in coastal communities like ours, it is vitally important that children & adults know the importance of water safety … especially as we head towards the summer holidays.

Over the next week, our swimming lessons will have a drowning prevention focus … please remember to bring a t-shirt to lessons!! 👚👕

 

Take a look at some of the activities that are taking place in our swimming lessons this week.

 

Enjoy Water Safely 

A message from Royal Life Saving Society 

Drowning Prevention Week aims to equip everybody across the UK and Ireland with the skills and knowledge, to make the right decisions about water safety.

The Royal Life Saving Society UK’s Charity Director Lee Heard, said: “The UK’s beautiful waterways should be places where everyone feels at ease, and can take pleasure from their surroundings, whatever their age, whatever their activity level. But we’re urging people to educate themselves on how to enjoy water safely, and prevent a fun day out ending in tragedy."

We urge as many parents as possible to get involved with the campaign, use our free online resources, and give their children the skills to enjoy a lifetime of fun in the water.”
