Adam Ridsdale

Introducing our Senior Chief Adam Ridsdale a training officer who’s a fan of the “do as I say” coaching method, but is more than willing to participate when it comes to post swimming pints. This being said he still leads by example and is a very talented lifesaver (he may have mentioned once or twice that he’s competed at worlds)

Jenny Carter

Introducing our new foreign affairs officer, Jennifer Carter. She is currently doing a year’s study in Switzerland, but is working hard to give our small club a name on the global stage. Incapable of taking a bad photo, and having won the RLSS UK West Region Ladies Open Trophy, Jenny’s status as the golden girl of Bristol lifesaving club will be hard to beat!

Gaby Bush

Gaby our secretary, kit officer and home competition organiser is probably the busiest person in the entire club and when she isn’t passive aggressively chasing up the rest of the committee to get jobs done for her she’s finding out all of their gossip. If you want the dirt on any of the members of our club then Gaby has got to be your first port of call, and I guess she does a pretty good job of organising us too.

Jared Wray

Jared was President in 2016-17, and it is more than fair to say that his life revolves around everything lifesaving. If you need a qualification, Jared is the man to speak to.

Outside lifesaving, Jared sometimes does a Biology degree, and enjoys long walks in the park where he opens his mind to think about more lifesaving.


Chris Brown

Our club president for 2017/18 can either be found in sports kit or his signature patterned jumpers. Chris jumpers are basically club kit! We’re still all amazed by how Chris manages to fit so much into his life. Lifesaving, waterpolo, orchestra and a physics degree make for a very busy club president, but there’s always time for a pint!

Alex Turner

Meet our resident MasterBaker Alex. Our training session are simply to burn off the calories from all the cake he makes. Alex is also the club photographer, with a particular knack for taking truly ugly photos of people. In his spare time, Mr Webmaster spends all his money on wooden spoons and searching the Internet for the strangest videos you’ve ever seen.
