Celebrating 50 years

50 years ago a chance encounter inspired the creation of Rainbow Club. In 1969, Ron Siddons, Beach Inspector and man of action, saw a father trying to enjoy the water with his disabled son. The child was placed in an inner tube of a car tyre for floatation. Ron said, “The poor little chap kept going under. I wondered why someone hadn’t tried to design a costume for these kiddies and I decided to do something about it.”
