Five candidates passed their National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification.

In addition, eight Nippers (aged between seven and 12 years old) obtained their Nipper Surf Competency Award which aims to introduce and develop water-based skills.

In July, 16 members represented Aberystwyth at the Welsh Championships, competing against huge teams from the larger clubs in south Wales.

At the party, held at Y Consti restaurant, county council leader Ellen ap Gwynn presented honorary pin badges to all those who had represented the club in 2017.

Cllr ap Gwyn also took the time to present the eight club shields as follows: Most Improved Nipper Female, Nellie Evans; Most Improved Nipper Male, Owain Llyr Hywel; Club Person Nipper Female, Bethan Lane; Club Person Nipper Male, Misha Fox-Maderson; Most Improved Junior Female, Cerianne Clarke; Most Improved Junior Male, Llyr Williams; Club Person Junior Female, Lily Pitcher; Club Person Junior Male, Alex Glasser.

Club chair Andrew Davies said: “This has been another fantastic year for ASLSC. We have continued to grow and build upon our success and are looking forward to another outstanding summer.

“However, we outgrew our facilities [the old public toilets] about six years ago and continue to search for opportunities to grow and develop the club.

“With bigger and better facilities, we could do so much more for young people and the community” here.
