My sister went to French Beach yesterday and told me about something wonderful. She said that a company has gone on a private venture and sponsored a team of lifeguards to patrol the beaches. They put out a job ad for the positions, got 300 applicants, and accepted 150 of those. A team from New Zealand came out to train them, and they’ve been kitted out with all the equipment including boogie boards, towers, rafts, and so on, and they can be seen on the beach, especially Sunday, in black and yellow uniforms. They are everywhere except on Clifton Beach. Now this is progress!
