Lifeguard service at Cafeteria Old Beach suspended

Attention Radio and TV Announcers:

Please broadcast the following special announcement as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (August 19) that the owing to insufficient lifeguards, the lifeguard service at Cafeteria Old Beach has been suspended.

Meanwhile, red flags at Middle Bay Beach, Shek O Beach, Big Wave Bay Beach, Stanley Main Beach and South Bay Beach have been lowered.

Red flags were earlier hoisted at the five beaches due to inclement weather and large waves. Red flags remain hoisted at 11 other beaches.

Wan Chai Swimming Pool, Sham Shui Po Park Swimming Pool, Morse Park Swimming Pool, Mui Wo Swimming Pool, Kwai Shing Swimming Pool and Sha Tin Jockey Club Swimming Pool have been temporarily closed starting from 10 am until the end of afternoon session as usual for the weekly cleansing operations.

As the Hong Kong and Kowloon Life Guards' Union has staged industrial action at Sha Tin from 12 noon, there might be further changes in the lifeguard services. Members of the public are advised to pay attention to the radio announcements of the latest situation.

Members of the public may call the Government Hotline at 1823 or browse LCSD's website at http://www.lcsd.gov.hk to enquire about the opening of public swimming pools.
