New lifeguards’ watchtower in place ready for summer season
Beach and sea safety at Lyme Regis has been improved this summer, thanks to a new lookout tower for lifeguards to replace the worn-out old structure.
It has been paid for by supporters of the RNLI and is in place now, ready for the lifeguards to start operating on Saturday, July 7.
The RNLI’s Area Lifesaving Manager Nigel Jones said it will make a real difference.
“The lifeguards can now see over a very crowded beach to the water and beyond, to the harbour wall, which is a popular location for youngsters jumping into the sea,” he said.
You may also want to watch:
“It is also a more conspicuous facility which provides an extremely useful first aid and information service and a focal point for lost children, plus better, more modern, welfare facilities for the lifeguards.”
The new tower will be in place until the end of the season in September.
