COVID-19 Update


Unfortunately due the current COVID-19 situation all beach and pool training has been suspended until further notice. As soon at the situation improves the Committee will take advice from SLSA Wales. 

As such, at present we are unable to commence with any training or club activities. This includes the use of club equipment and access to the building. The RNLI will be commencing a patrol service from the 4th July and the club house will be open, but you will only be allowed to enter the building if you are willing to do a voluntary patrol and not to use any club equipment. 

If you would like to become an RNLI Lifeguard Volunteer and support the RNLI lifeguards on our beaches please follow this link.

Hopefully we will see some of this season, but it’s not looking good at present.


Thank you for your patience and please stay safe.


As a response to the current shows of appreciation for the NHS and other front line services SLSA Wales has encouraged members of clubs in Wales to be a part of the SLSA Rainbow.
