New recruits for Cleethorpes beach safety

The beach safety team in Cleethorpes has welcomed four new recruits in a bid to keep the resort as safe as possible during the ongoing pandemic.

A key part of the Outbreak Control Plan produced by North East Lincolnshire Council and Public Health refers to the prevention of local outbreaks in high-risk places, locations and communities in the borough.

The Council have recognised that areas such as Cleethorpes are high risk due to the volume of people that can gather there, and due to influxes of people as the weather improves.

The need for some stewarding support has been agreed, and four new recruits have been assigned.

North East Lincolnshire Council are looking to appoint several additional Covid-19 Prevention Assistants.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio environment and transport at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:

“It’s very clear that this virus will be around for some time and we need to act on this and make sure that we are taking all the necessary steps to make North East Lincolnshire as safe as possible for both residents and visitors.

“We need to do all we can to prevent any local outbreaks, especially in high-risk places, locations and communities and this includes high footfall areas such as Grimsby town centre and the resort of Cleethorpes.

“I’m pleased the council has been able to appoint new, temporary Prevention Assistants to support beach safety over the coming months and that the council will continue to look at appointing even more recruits in the near future.”
