Swim Safe is aimed at children aged 7 to 14 years who are able to swim 25 metres unaided. The initiative will run six days a week from 29 July to 26 August and is open to both holidaymakers and local children.

Bude attracts tens of thousands of children from all parts of the UK each year, with lots of children desperate to get into the water and have fun. Swim Safe will provide these children with the essential skills and safety information they need to enjoy themselves safely in open water
