In memory of John Heyes

John joined the Hastings Voluntary Lifeguard Club over 40 years ago. The Club was still developing and he taught us the skills, knowledge and values that we needed to develop within the club to be recognised as a reliable rescue, safety and training organisation.
John became our club chair giving us opportunities to work with other emergency services and ensuring we cascaded down the values and standards.
John always maintained a real interest in the cub and it's activities - always quick to correct us if he thought we were 'off course'.
We will always be indebted to him and will continue to strive to pass on his ideals to all our members.
We are very grateful to John's family for asking for donations in his memory to our Club.
