Beach Safety : Safety Advice

Millions of people enjoy spending time at beaches around the UK every year. Being aware of the dangers at the beach and spotting the hazards will ensure that your visit to the beach is a happy event and does not turn into a tragedy. When visiting the beach, especially if you have children with you, consider the following:-

Spot the dangers Do a check of the beach when you arrive. Notice whether there are lifeguards available, whether the tide is in or out, are there rocks, piers, groynes or breakwaters that may affect paddling and bathing. Is the beach busy? Are there watersports taking place, are these in zoned areas? What are the sea conditions like, does the beach shelve steeply?

Take safety advice Try and choose a beach that offers a lifeguard service and swim where the patrol operates, within the area of red/yellow flags. Look for safety information which may include warning signs and know what the flags mean:-

Red and Yellow - Lifeguards on patrol. Two flags at the waters edge denote where the patrolled bathing area is.

Red and Yellow – Lifeguards on patrol. Two flags at the waters edge denote where the patrolled bathing area is.

Red – Dangerous to bathe or swim and you should not go into the water.

Quartered black and white flag - shows that an area is zoned off for watersport activities, swimmers and bathers should avoid this area, it is not safe for them.

Go together Children should always go with an adult, not by themselves. Don’t swim alone. Make sure that you know where everyone in your group is. Constant supervision is the only real means of ensuring your child’s safety.

50 ways to save on your holidays

Richard Browning

SCHOOLS are clamping down on parents who take their children on holiday during term time. At best, to get permission for even one extra day off at either end of a holiday requires a degree of form filling and letter writing that wouldn’t be out of place in a Soviet police station. Even then, the final decision rests on the whim of the chairman of governors. While the difference a day makes to a child’s education is unquantifiable, it can add thousands of pounds to the price of a family holiday. But with this option of saving money virtually outlawed, how do you stick within the rules without breaking the bank?

Here are some examples from the article on how to save money on your holiday. Visit “Holiday Money” to read the holiday article in full.

10. Check back later Travel agents and internet users can reserve flights and holidays for several days without purchasing them. So if at first you find a deal is unavailable at the price you want to pay, you have a choice: pay the higher price or wait a few days to see if the places become available again.

11. Sign up for special offers by email. Any airline or travel agent worth its reputation has a service that allows you to hear about the deals first. Choose a few of your favourites and sign up. You could access big savings for a few minutes’ effort.

12. Go camping The rise of the no-frills airlines has spawned a craze in ultra-low-cost holidays. You can buy a camping kit for a family of four including tent, mats and sleeping bags for sometimes less than £100. You book your flights to somewhere preferably with insignificant annual rainfall and then pay a few pounds a night to sleep under the stars. And remember: campsites abroad are often much better equipped than those in Britain.

Rent a dream villa, self catering apartment or luxury chateau in France direct with the owner – On offer are apartments in Paris, luxury villas for rent in Cote d’Azur or rent a castle – the choice is yours.

16. Interail Again, not just for gap-year students. There are many European and country-specific rail schemes to enjoy. If you’re really savvy you can travel on the overnight trains with your own cabin to avoid booking a hotel.

17. Think about cheap hotel chains In Britain, there’s Travelodge and Holiday Inn Express among others. In France there are tons of them dotted all over the country with rooms for three people from less than £20 a night. They’re close enough to all the major tourist areas to make it a real viable option for the cost-conscious francophile.

18. Do your own research online You don’t have to pay a fortune or spend years trawling the globe for the hidden gems. Just log on one or more of the travel websites and read the views of previous guests. Remember: cheap doesn’t have to mean nasty.

43. Don’t let Disney take the Mickey The mousesavers website maybe for American people but it is definitely worth a read if you want to do Disney for less.

44. Track down local restuarants In Venice, in general, the closer a restaurant is to St Mark’s Square the more touristy and expensive it is. Remember, wherever you go local people eat out too. Avoid the tourist traps and you’ll be better fed and richer.

45. Check in to the library For free guide books pop in to your local library. You can ask for an extended borrowing period if you are worried about not getting the books back on time, or renew them online.
