My Super 7
With the holidays here, who better to ask for their Super 7 cultural picks than Ady Woods, joint coxswain of Cromer’s RNLI lifeboat crew?
With summer in full swing, and the temperature hotting up, it’s a busy time for the RNLI as people take to the sea. Ady Woods, joint coxswain of Cromer lifeboat, says call-outs cover a huge range of things.
“The introduction of RNLI lifeguards on to the beach has really helped reduce some of our call-outs as they are so proactive, advising people and stopping them from getting into dangerous situations.”
Ady, a window cleaner, has been part of the lifeboat crew for 30 years and is also a retained fire-fighter.
“Our advice is don’t swim near the pier or breakwaters, always swim between the flags. If you find yourself in trouble in the water remember ‘float to live’. Don’t panic, don’t try and swim against the current, The harder you swim, the more exhausted you get. Float, and try and attract attention on the beach.”
