LOOKING like a very 1960s cast of Baywatch, Brighton’s lifeguards can be seen carrying out their duties above.

They were some of the first to patrol the city’s beach and keep revellers safe while they enjoyed the summer sun.

Brighton Surf Life Saving Club is affiliated to surf lifesaving across the country.

It started in the 1950s as one of the first three Surf Lifesaving Club Great Britain clubs in the country.

The other two were in Bude and Perranporth in the West Country.

The original club closed in the late 1970s due to older members not being replaced by younger ones.

This was mainly because the club did not have a juniors group to train to become the next generation of lifeguards patrolling Brighton beach.

But the club reformed five years ago and has continued to grow since.

It offers a range of courses, including beach lifeguard training, train the trainer courses, first aid at work and lifesaving sport courses.

Brighton lifeguards have also worked at Paddle Round the Pier, in association with the Brighton Heart Foundation, and many other events around Sussex.

Most of the lifeguards on the city’s beach are trained by the club and are active members of the BSLSC.

The club currently trains many of the beach lifeguards on duty throughout the South East and has an up and coming competition team, which competes in triathlons and national sporting events.

Brighton lifeguards pictured above include George Wheeler, another man who The Argus believes is possibly Ken Wit and Mike Obrian.

If you recognise any of the other lifeguards and would like to update us on the pictures, please get in touch.
