Preparations are being made by lifeguards as they get ready for the Easter Holidays in Weymouth.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has started to install its life saving units along the main beach in Weymouth in order to supervise and patrol swimmers enjoying a dip in the sea.

Lifeguards will also be reporting for training soon to complete their preparations. 

A spokesperson for the RNLI said: "Our RNLI Lifeguard units were installed on Weymouth Main Beach on Monday, ready for the 2024 Easter holidays.

"A number of the team will be starting back for their induction training next week in preparation. Not long now."

The RNLI is also looking for people to join its team for anyone interested in becoming a paid or volunteer lifeguard role locally.

However, there is just one space left on the Weymouth Surf Life Saving Club's Surf Life Saving GB Lifeguard Course.

Anyone interested should email as soon as possible in order to qualify ahead of their2024 Selection Day.
