Statement by Flick Drummond MP on the Department for Transport grant award of £74,018 to Portsmouth and Southsea Voluntary Lifeguards

‘This grant award will help the lifeguards to continue their amazing work in the summer months along Southsea seafront – work that I know is very much appreciated by residents and visitors.

‘The volunteers are always a very reassuring presence for those enjoying the beach, and on special occasions too, when they ensure safety for events like cross Solent swims.

‘Portsmouth is very lucky to have them and this is a very good use of our money.’
