NCI Torbay had a ‘sup’er safety day last weekend on the popular Goodrington Beach.

The warm weather and last weekend of the school holidays brought families out in force to the beach where the station’s water safety officers and watchkeepers were on hand to promote coastal safety to families, paddleboarders and anyone who loves having a great day out at the coast. 

The NCI crew were on hand to chat with locals and visitors, armed with children’s activity books, pens, children’s wristbands and the very popular waterproof mobile phone cases. They also provided local safety information specific to Torbay. 

 All in all, a super day out!

Currently almost 60 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteer watchkeepers around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Filey in North Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
