Welcome / Croeso

The Rhondda (Cold Knap) Lifeguard Club is a not – for – profit registered charity, number 1054305. We are a voluntary lifeguard club and are affiliated to the Royal Life Saving Society and the Surf Life Saving Association of Wales.

We are one of the smallest lifeguard clubs in Wales, with approximately forty members, but we are unique in the fact that we are based in the former coal mining community of the Rhondda, some twenty miles from the sea. From Easter to October half-term, the Club are also based at Cold Knap Point, Barry, where the Vale of Glamorgan Council have provided a building to be used as a lifeguard station.

Street Collection

A big thank you to all the people of Barry who supported us recently in our annual Flag Day street collection. Being a voluntary lifesaving organisation, entirely funded by support from the public, we really are extremely grateful for this and also to the many people who when walking past our Lifeguard station at the Knap, contribute to our giant money box there.
