NEWS AND EVENTS
New Unit Installed In Medmenham
On Monday, August 3rd, we installed our 29th water safety unit along the River Thames.
Our team, Alan Sheppard and George Chamberlain along with Medmenham Parish Council member Michael Anderson, spent the early afternoon installing and securing our latest water safety unit in Medmenham. This is a very beautiful but very dangerous stretch of the river. This latest unit is now our furthest unit outside of Marlow.
We hope to install unit number 30 really soon!

Water Safety Poster
Kyrece's proud sister Ameera was asked to design a safety poster for her homework and of course she chose water safety. Ameera is very proud of the charity and even more proud of her brother. She was told by her teacher that the poster is going on the wall and she is even happier that it is also on the website! Well done Ameera, we all think it is fantastic!
