Memory Lane: Grantham Lifesaving club members go for – and get –gold
This photograph, taken in July 1995, is of junior members of Grantham Lifesaving Club. They are proudly showing off their Aqua Gold awards, which were presented to them by club secretary Joan Toon.
The children had demonstrated a gold level of resuscitation, first aid and recovery techniques, such as swimming under water for three metres and recovering a mannequin from a depth of 1.5 metres.
These were the final Aqua awards as the club was due to move on to a new scheme.
