Joe and Petunia

This public information film is charming and fun – but the message still stands, at least for the UK – if you see someone on the coast in trouble, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

Take care this weekend – there may be no Coastguard

The BBC is reporting that the Coastguards are going on strike this Bank Holiday weekend, so if you’re going out please take care.

I’d just like to say I hope the dispute is over as soon as possible both for our sakes and theirs – if the Coasties feel they have to strike, they must be very angry indeed.

Stay safe, everyone.
