Carnival time

This week is carnival time and like many in the town the volunteer Coastguards take the week off from their full time jobs to boost emergency cover and enjoy the week.

So around town you will have found the following team members in strategic locations ready to respond .

Station Officer - beach hut Shore Road

Tom - Carnival Caravan Shore Road

Eric - Commentating the Go Kart competition Shore Road

Nick - Wandering between Sandpit field and Shore Road

Duncan - Drinking Coffee at local coffee shop

Chris - Entertaining family shore Road

Roger - Beach hut shore Road and Mayoral duties as required.

Brian - Sandpit field

Kyle - on duty in Swanage

Today was quiet on the Coastguard front although the strong off shore wind saw, a red beach ball, black rubber ring and green inflatable crocodile blown out to sea.
There was also nearly an incident where a young child was blown out to sea however his parents quickly went to his assistance.

Just a reminder to always keep inflatable toys close inshore and under control.

Tonight saw the Carnvial swim at the stone quay and a lot of competitors in the water. Thankfully no incidents other than a couple of minor 1st aid treatments.
