Sheringham leisure centre Splash is marking national Drowning Prevention week, which runs from Friday untilJune 26, with a series of sessions aimed at making adults and children aware of the dangers of open water.

Classes on offer from June 16 to 26 include water safety skills, 'Tango Man' tows and a lifesaving class for adults.

Duty manager Ash Allen said the annual event, which is run by drowning prevention charity the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS), was a good way of raising awareness and equipping people with the skills they needed to rescue those in trouble in the water without putting their own safety at risk.

'Everyone should respect open water and be aware of the dangers it presents,' he added. 'And Splash is very excited to be putting on these events for the people of Sheringham.'
