Welcome / Croeso

The Rhondda (Cold Knap) Lifeguard Club is a not – for – profit registered charity, number 1054305. We are a voluntary lifeguard club and are affiliated to the Royal Life Saving Society and the Surf Life Saving Association of Wales.

We are one of the smallest lifeguard clubs in Wales, with approximately forty members, but we are unique in the fact that we are based in the former coal mining community of the Rhondda, some twenty miles from the sea. From Easter to October half-term, the Club are also based at Cold Knap Point, Barry, where the Vale of Glamorgan Council have provided a building to be used as a lifeguard station.
