NORTH Devon's RNLI Lifeguards are back on the beaches in time for the school half-term holiday. RNLI Lifeguards are now patrolling Westward Ho!, Croyde, Woolacombe and Sandymere from 10am - 6pm every day right through until September.To ensure that all visitors enjoy their day at the beach a few simple rules are put in place by the Lifeguards, namely, swim or bodyboard between the red and yellow flags, follow lifeguard instructions and remember that a red flag indicates that it is not safe to enter the sea. Hoping for a sunny season this year visitors are also being advised to remember their sun sense and SLIP on a t-shirt, SLAP on a hat and SLOP on some sunscreen. In 2008, the North Devon RNLI Lifeguards attended to 589 incidents involving 1,106 people.
