Sudbury Life Savers Club

Page updated - 03 November 2007



For the past 40 years the Sudbury Life Savers have been serving the community by training children from the age of seven up to adults of 40+ how to react and save lives around the waters edge, be it sea, river or pool.


In 1966 there was a triple drowning disaster in the River Stour in Sudbury and this led to the creation of Sudbury Life Saving Club. Since its formation nearly 40 years ago the club has gone from strength to strength. The main aim of the club has always been to prevent drownings by training swimmers and non-swimmers life saving skills.


There are three levels of life-saving, each one more advanced than the other from the beginners level of Life Savers 1, 2 & 3 to the dizzy heights of the Bronze Medallion and teenagers can benefit by using the Bronze Medallion as part of their GCSE Curriculum.


We meet at the Kingfisher Leisure Pool every Sunday night at 7:30 pm during school terms where fully trained teachers are on hand to teach, assist and extend to you a warm and friendly welcome. If you are interested, please visit the Sudbury Life Savers website where you will find our contact details and more information, email Sudbury Life Savers or phone (01787) 882665.

We look forward to meeting you.
