St Luke’s Halsall C of E School pupils design Crosby beach safety banners
Sefton Council has passed on a big ‘well done’ to pupils from Years 1 and 4 at St Luke’s Halsall C of E School for creating colourful beach safety banners that are now on display at Crosby – the school’s local beach.
The banners were designed earlier this year while the children were undertaking a project around staying safe while visiting the coast.
Anyone visiting Crosby this summer is urged to look out for them as well as the permanent safety signs which can be found at every access point to the beach.
They highlight that Crosby is not a designated bathing beach and that other possible dangers like soft mud & sand, as well as incoming tides, mean that people should stay within 50m of the promenade/ sea wall.
Please follow the advice of RNLI lifeguards during your visit, they are on patrol at all Sefton beaches during the summer months:
- Visit a lifeguarded beach & swim between the red and yellow flags (no swimming at beaches like Crosby that are not designated bathing water)
- If you get into trouble in the water ‘Float to Live’ – lie on your back and relax, resisting the urge to thrash about
- Call 999 or 112 in an emergency and ask for the Coastguard
