We have been invited to put on a demonstration of lifesaving techniques at Tip Road and  mount a roving patrol in the area during the event. If we could get sufficient guards we might consider putting up flags for a couple of hours.
I don’t want to leave Kevin and Green Patrol short (we are definitely late for an inspection) so a couple of extra bodies would be very helpful. If anyone is interested they can contact Andrew 0274398072 or 4325521
