|Feb 2014 Newsletter
Happy New Year! Okay - I know it's February, but since this is the first newsletter of 2014 I thought I'd suggest one New Year's resolution that you can keep: why not attend an RLSS A&NW event during the next twelve months? They're a great way to meet other local lifesavers and try some new lifesaving skills. And what better way to start than by signing up for one of the great events featured in this month's newsletter! I'm planning to attend all of these events - so if you're going too, please come over and introduce yourself! It's always a pleasure to meet A&NW lifesavers.

FREE Club Support Workshop - 16 Feb 2014
To support the great work that our Lifesaving Instructors and Tutors are doing in the delivery of the lifesaving awards, RLSS UK is running a range of free support and development workshops throughout 2014 (including an event in Bristol on 16 Feb).
The workshops will be available to all Instructors and will focus on the delivery of the Survive & Save Programme, although a wide range of club related topics will also be covered. The workshops will provide the opportunity to come together with other RLSS UK Instructors and staff to receive relevant information and new resources, and to discuss the issues that are important to YOU!

There are two
competitions coming up which may be of interest to local lifesavers. The first event is the Birmingham University Competition held on 22 Feb 2014. This is followed by the National Student Championships on 15th & 16th March. You don't have to be a student to take part - both events are open to lifesavers from community clubs.
