We recently welcomed back to Newquay Activity Centre, our wonderful friends at RAF St Mawgan for our annual RAF Family day. We host this gathering annually, as a personal way of connecting with military families and the military community, and demonstrating with purpose and intent, how fully we support them.
This year we organised a behind the scenes tour of the impressive RNLI station at Fistral Beach. It’s an incredible facility with lots to see and learn, and an unbelievable vantage point over the mighty Fistral waves. We then put our military buddies through their paces with our family friendly Surf Survivor Activity, which combines lifeguarding skills, beach safety and coastal awareness. Surf Survivor is a great way to engage with children, and a fun way to educate groups on water safety and rescue skills.
These activities, coupled with perfect weather meant a fantastic day was had by all. As well as it being educational, and valuable, we also helped families make incredible memories together, and that is priceless.
This was our eighth year of delivering our RAF Family Day, and working to connect with and champion our local military families. This is an event that we’ll continue to build upon going forwards. Thank you to all who joined us, and we hope to see you next year if not before!
