Water Safety in Thanet
Getting the message across about water safety
is vital, as in the coastline plays such a huge part in all our
lives in North East Kent.
This initiative is aimed at primary and
secondary school children aged 8 to 14 years old, as children spend
much of their holidays enjoying our beautiful beaches and we want
to ensure that they know how to stay safe.
‘Water Safety in Thanet’ is a DVD resource
that focuses on the dangers around the Thanet coastline, how to
stay safe, have fun on the beaches and look after the environment.
This initiative is a collaboration between the Thanet Coast
Project, lifeguards at Thanet Leisureforce, HM Coastguard and RNLI
with support from the Big Lottery Fund.
Thanet schools and interested groups have been
sent a ‘Water Safety in Thanet’ DVD and coastal educational pack as
part of this initiative. However, the message has been encompassed
on this website to show a trailer, and cover the four main themes
in four easy sections that can be viewed online.
Please note: From 2012, the RLNI have taken over the
lifeguard duties on many of Thanet beaches (previously run by
