Cromer Town Council gives award for RNLI Community Safety
RNLI Cromer have been awarded a grant to help promote community safety in the Cromer area, as part of their ‘Respect the Water’ campaign. Respect the Water is a vital campaign which the RNLI promote every year to reduce the number of accidents and fatalities, not only in the sea, but also inland water.
The campaign is introduced to the public and local organisations by a Community Safety Officer; Cromer’s CSO is Bernice Stowe.
Bernice applied for a grant to have a pull up board designed and produced which can be easily transported, and shows dangers at the coast and on inland waters. The generous amount awarded means the board is now available, and has already been in use at many local events.
Funds from the New Years Day firework display held annually in Cromer, after expenses, are allocated to local groups. Cromer Town Council's preference is to provide financial assistance for specific projects or purchase of equipment.
During the recent Cromer Community Day Bernice said. ‘I am very grateful for the funding to get this display board; it allows us to get the message across to people, not only those who live in Cromer but also to visitors.
