This has since become a tradition for the start of Lifeguarding season.A week before official Lifeguard duty in November 2017, the public had made them aware of a drowning down at the beach, but unfortunately Joshua, a 14 year old boy could not be found. A week later, on their first duty day, they decided to have a paddle out to remember his life and to ready themselves for the season ahead.Crew and the public gathered on the beach that day- https://www.nsri.org.za/2017/11/melkbos-lifeguards-open-the-volunteer-season-and-remember-joshua/We wish all our volunteers and Lifeguards around the country a safe season ahead.
