Part time Voluntary Watchkeeper

Carry out a minimum of two 3 hour watches per month, providing 'eyes along the coast' - keeping a lookout for people / vessels getting into problems on the water and liaising with HM Coastguard to keep them safe. Two sites - Calshot Tower and Stone Point (at Lepe Country Park). Full training given - we have moved a lot of the initial training onto video but most training will be carried out while on watch duty. Trainees will always be on duty with a qualified watchkeeper.

Due to Covid restrictions, we cannot invite visitors at the moment but would still like people to get in touch as we will definitely need volunteers when restrictions are eased.
