Purely Local CPT

Summer holidays and the festive season mean different things to everyone – for most of us, it’s a time to spend time with friends and family, resting, relaxing and eating (this is definitely my top priority – in fact, I’ve just wrestled a 1kg Christmas cake into the oven). But, spare a thought for the incredible men and women who keep us safe over this busy time. We chatted with a few of our local heroes – the lifeguards, sharkspotters and firefighters – about what they love about their jobs, but also what they’d love us, the public, to know about what they do.
