Key Safe Sea Safe

 Keeping your Keys Safe while you Surf or SwimKey Safe Sea Safe logo

Key Safe Sea Safe: was brought into fruition in July 2013 to enable surfers and any people using the beach or having a swim who would like their keys looked after by NCI Cromer.

How does it work:

NCI Cromer will hold car keys for surfers, divers and anyone who wishes to use the service. You will be issued with a numbered wrist band, your keys held in the lookout and the duty watchkeeper will log the time and date that you are preparing to go into the water On your return you  hand in your wrist band and your keys will be returned. The duty watchkeeper can then log that you are safely out of the water.

This service is provided on a donation basis only as we say we look out for you and your car keys, but not your car.  

Before going out to surf check out the: RNLI In the Surf - Surf Sport Safety information sheet.

To find your nearest Life Guarded Beach (Dependant on Season) look at the 'Good Beach Guide'.

If you're interested and would like to use this service please call in at NCI Cromer, Car Park, Beach Road, East Runton, NR27-9PA or telephone the lookout station: 01263-513725
