Safer swimmer, safer summer Does a long hot summer mean spending as much time as possible in water – a pool in your garden, leisure centre, river, pond, outside swimming pool, the sea? Most of the time you and your friends will just have fun splashing about keeping cool but would you know what to do if something went wrong? Check out a Wise up to Water Safer Summer workshop and learn what to do. This great workshop teaches you the Water Safety code, how to keep safe and how to help someone who is in trouble without putting yourself in danger. You will also learn how to bodyboard, throw a rope and be a lifesaver. If you can already swim 100 metres or have got your Dolphin 7 award this course is suitable for you. Courses are available in Leeds City Council Leisure Centres: to find out where, contact leeds.lifesaving@leeds.gov.uk or phone 0113 2475243.

Booking is essential for all activities

A SHOCKING WARNING STAY AWAY! STAY ALIVE!

Warn your children if their football goes inside an electricity substation, or if vandals have broken in and left the doors open, to STAY OUT. Ring us on the number shown on the substation or in the phone book under “E” for electricity and we’ll come straight away.

If they are going fishing, you should warn them to stay at least 30 metres away from any overhead wires and take their fishing rods apart before moving from one place to another.

Make sure they are aware that flying kites near overhead wires is very dangerous. If their kite does get stuck in wires, they must leave it alone and stop anyone from touching the string. Never climb pylons as electricity can jump gaps and kill you.
