Bassetlaw MP John Mann has joined forces with the UK’s drowning prevention charity as part of a campaign to reduce drowning and provide more water safety education both in Bassetlaw and across the country.
“This week is Drowning Prevention Week, and I am pleased to support the important work that the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) does,” said Mr Mann.
“Locally we have had some tragic drowning cases in the past.”
“I think that the RLSS is right to commit to safety education to try to reduce the number of people that drown each year.”
RLSS UK president Peter Moyes added: “I can’t thank John Mann enough for pledging to help us in our efforts, not only during Drowning Prevention Week but all year round, especially to get water safety education taught in all schools.”
