Well that was a fun afternoon yesterday. Buchan Badge nautical with Form 2 asking “Who keeps us safe on our coast?” Fortunately for the class they are in good hands, with teacher Miss Ashton being a member of the Coastguard and myself being RNLI crew. We bring our gear in to school, have a bit of a fancy dress session and share some stories of rescues and our activities around the coast.
It is always fun when the youngsters realise there is a fourth emergency service (and it isn’t the AA!), “You can dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard” always a handy tip when you live on an island!
