We’re Supporting Drowning Prevention Week!

15th June 2020

Drowning Prevention Week 2020 runs from 12th to 19th of June. The annual campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers and potentially life-threatening risks of water, to ensure everyone knows how to have fun and stay safe.

Created by the Royal Life Saving Society UK, the campaign is now in its 7th year, with a mission to cut down the number of drownings that still tragically occur each year.

Safety is absolutely critical to our business and we are passionate about educating children about being aware of potential dangers they may face from an early age. 

A lot of our work within the water sector is conducted around open water and we want to make sure everyone knows the dangers of it.

We recently released resources and activities focussing on Child Safety, using the characters of twins Harry and Amy from our award-winning book When I Grow Up.

The resources and activities help children understand the dangers both on construction sites and in everyday life.

Get Involved 

Within the activities there’s an opportunity for children to design a water safety poster. All you need to do is send your completed poster either by email to info@nmcn.com or by post to: nmcn plc, Nunn Close, The County Estate, Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, NG17 2HW

We look forward to seeing your entries and we’ll choose a number of entries to display on our sites!

Need inspiration? Try incorporating the Water Safety Code into your design.

Our water safety resources and poster competition is a great way to help children understand the dangers around water.

We want to remind everyone to stay safe near water and to help educate individuals and families. Safety is a serious issue as while the water may look tempting, there are many hidden dangers. We need to ensure everyone is aware of these hazards, and encourage people to stay out and stay safe, especially as we get into the high-risk summer months where there is a spike in fatal drowning incidents.
