To carry out desperately needed repairs and updating to our club house, including the addition of an accessible toilet facility.

by Helen Watson in Cromer, England, United Kingdom

Formed in 2007, North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club has been training people in water safety, first aid and lifesaving skills for more than 10 years. Hundreds of our volunteers have used the skills and qualifications gained with us to find paid employment with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution as beach lifeguards, and several have worked around the world in places like New Zealand and Australia. We also provide free swimming lessons for children and young people, and teach all our members how to respect, preserve and enjoy our coastline. In 2011, after several years of hard work and fundraising, we converted a disused toilet block on the promenade in Cromer into a clubhouse. With Male and Female changing rooms, a training room and storage for our equipment; this gave us a solid base from which to grow our club. Being located on the promenade, the clubhouse takes the brunt of the weather coming from the North Sea. As a result, the condition of the facility has deteriorated over the course of the last few years. We now have more members than ever, and therefore need more equipment to accommodate them. The clubhouse desperately needs repairs and maintenance to the walls and ceiling, better storage solutions, and an accessible toilet facility to allow us to cater for members with any additional needs. We plan to repair areas of damp in the changing rooms, repair the ceiling, add better storage for our equipment and re-fit the accessible toilet facilities. Doing this much needed work now will allow us to keep safely using the clubhouse for years to come so that we can continue to provide skills, qualifications and pathways to employment for young people in coastal North Norfolk.
