Wind and rain did not stop 
160 Sidmouth Primary School pupils from visiting the 
beach to learn about the benefits of the sea and 
keeping safe.

The year five and six children took part on a number of 'beach and sea safety' sessions, funded by Sid Valley Rotary, over two days.

Guy Russell, of Jurassic Paddle and Sidmouth Lifeboat, and his colleague Maddy 
ran the sessions starting with 
a beach clean interspersed 
with serious safety messages and discussions about the benefits of the sea on mental health, and of course keeping fit and having fun.

The poor weather provided an appropriate platform to explain the importance of respecting the water.

Ending at Sidmouth 
ifeboat station, Mr Russell challenged the youngsters 
to clean the beach on every 
trip and to share what they 
had learnt with their 
parents.
