How do you feel
about using holiday time to learn to swim with a UK

how far you need to travel we can make suggestions for flights or train services

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

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.

7. House swap

You may think you live in a horrid, torrid suburban time warp – but to an
American visitor your home could well the quaint historic corner of Britain that
they’ve been yearning for. Likewise, their ‘small’ tumble-down hovel will
probably feel like a mansion. Give it at try.

8. Check out the special ‘anti-truancy’ deals

As part of the Government’s Every Lesson Counts campaign to cut down on truancy,
major holiday companies have developed special deals such as free child places
and money off for adults. Ask your school for details or contact the travel
firms – but bear in mind that many of these offers may still be cheaper
elsewhere.

9. Surf for a deal

It’s one of the things the internet does best. Compare flights, create your own
holidays and book online – or use it for research then phone around the High
Street chains and haggle.

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.
