Dorset based security firm Real World Services are looking forward to having some beach time this Summer when they provide ‘Asset Protection’ and ‘Site Security’ to Weymouth Town Councils 2019 sports programme on Weymouth Beach.
Real World Services will be overseeing the security of the beach site for Weymouth Town Council ‘Summer of Great Sport and Fun on Weymouth Beach’. The site consists of a Beach Sports Arena, infrastructure, equipment and ancillary buildings/structures.
Highlights of the event include the Royal Navy Rugby Competition, Weymouth Bay Swim and the prestigious Weymouth Beach Volleyball Classic.
Paul Roberts, Head of Security Operations at Real World Services, “It is always a pleasure to be working with Weymouth Town Council on this long standing event. We have been doing it for 15 years and
we have seen the event grow from strength to strength each year.”
Real World Services are nationally known as ‘Event Security’ providers. They provided ‘Event Security’ at the ‘Beach Live Site’ on Weymouth beach during the 2012 Olympics, where they kept crowds of tens of thousands safe each day.
Weymouth Town Council ‘Summer of Great Sport and Fun on Weymouth Beach’ is a programme of sport and activities on Weymouth Beach. The programme features a rich mix of events, sport and activities, all based at the temporary ‘Beach Sports Arena’ on Weymouth Beach (Weymouth Pavilion end). The Arena will feature free grandstand seating for all events, public address system for commentary and music plus marquee for participants support. The programme opens on Wednesday 17th July with the Royal Navy Rugby Competition and concludes with the prestigious Weymouth Beach Volleyball Classic on Sunday 28th July. All events are free to spectate and entry details (where applicable) are available through the individual organisations.
Weymouth Town Council Chairman of Services Cllr David Northam: “Weymouth is a fabulous destination for hosting events and festivals throughout the year. The summer sports programme on Weymouth Beach is always a great favourite, providing a unique range of sports, activities and competitions on one of the world’s favourite playing surfaces This project is a splendid example of collaboration and teamwork, our thanks and praise go to the many local sports clubs, armed forces and tireless army of volunteers that have joined the Weymouth Town Council to help make this project a great success.”
