St Agnes Surf Lifesaving Club is a registered charity #1037741 and our objectives are:

  • To protect against loss of life at sea through education, training and action.
  • To represent and promote the sports of surf lifesaving and surfing in St Agnes.
  • To encourage the safe enjoyment of the coastal environment.

The club is affiliated to the national governing bodies for Surfing and Surf Lifesaving:

  • Surf Lifesaving Association of Great Britain (SLSGB)
  • Surfing England

Founded in 1953, the club was the second to be established in the UK and the birthplace of the Surf Lifesaving Association of GB.

St Agnes is the largest Surf Lifesaving club in the UK with over 900 members. The club is run entirely by volunteers.

We all benefit from a club and equipment that it as open as possible, so whether you’ve got a transformational idea to take the club forward, simply check the sink is empty when you’re passing, or drag up a board you didn’t use, let’s all do our part to go beyond sustainable and achieve amazing. It needn’t even be an hour, just 15 minutes per week could have a massive impact.

Volunteering feels good and, regardless of whether it’s going out on patrol, supporting the lifeguards, helping on the BBQ, cleaning the floors, or putting a bit of paint round the place the more we do as a community the more of our funds can be directly invested in providing the kit and training that has a meaningful impact on lives saved around our coast.

If there is anyone new to the club or any member that wants an introduction to what the club has to offer, what kit we have and how/ who can use it please feel free to get in contact with us.

We have been lucky over the last few months in increasing our committee members from single digits to double digits but we are still looking for more people to be part of the committee and continue to make positive changes to the club (come to the monthly meeting first Sunday of every month at 7pm at St Agnes SLSC building). Any involvement is welcomed (big or small) as without your help we can not continue to drive the club forward.
