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.

Simon Gibson Trust Fund

A big thank you to the trustees of the Simon Gibson Charitable Trust fund, who have awarded us a grant to update and improve our CPR training equipment. For the first time we will have electronic resuscitator Anne's' which will feed real-time information to an app which members can download to their phones. This should allow us to improve the training provided as well as increase motivation and interest for those taking part.

Summer Training Starts

At last and with good weather fast approaching, our summer season training starts this Thursday 3rd May, 18.00hrs at our Lifeguard Station down at the Knap. All welcome to attend, including any prospective new members. Membership fees will also be collected on the night and an induction will be given by our Club Captain.

Big Thanks

We would like to give two local supermarkets a big thank you for organising fundraising events to support our Club. Waitrose and Asda's super stores in Barry are the two stores involved and we can't thank them enough for their support.
