Success for young Bedale life-savers
4:30pm Friday 11th October 2013 in News
NINE young swimmers from Bedale took the top spots when they entered a life-saving competition.
The youngsters are part of the weekly Rookie Lifesaving group which meets at Bedale Leisure Centre.
They formed two teams to take part in the York Lifesaving Competition – and came away with both gold and silver medals.
The competition began with an aquatic ‘incident’ in which the teams had three minutes to deal with a previously unknown situation - they were marked on speed, safety and rescue technique.
That was followed by mannequin -towing, rope throwing and a team challenge.
Junior lifesaving classes for beginners run at Bedale Leisure Centre on Fridays from 5.15pm. For more information contact the centre on (01677) 427272.
