Adult Bravery Award

Sam Girdlestone put his own life a t risk to save someone else!

Here's what we were told about Sam's bravery:

"Sam rescued a woman stuck in the mud at Rowhedge with a fast rising tide.

He got in the water, tied a rope around her waist and stayed with her, keeping her head above water until coastguards and further help arrived."
