Debbie’s Story

River And Sea Sense has been set up as a positive response to the tragic death of 15 year old Christopher Turnbull who drowned at Capel Curig (Cyfyng Falls on the Afon Llugwy) on 14th August 2006.

A strong, handsome young man, an excellent swimmer, rugby player, leader and a good friend. On this fatal day no one could save him. One of his close friends tried but the current prevailed. After a lengthy search a team of divers retrieved his body at 7.03 that evening.

Precious memories: his gold 3 Welsh feathers necklace which was found with him, a lock of his ebony black hair and some personal effects – all of which now are priceless.

School Visits

School visits are now a priority to help educate youngsters. The news section describes the effect already this is having on the local community.

School visits are where River And Sea Sense began.  I spoke at my son’s school Erias Park in Colwyn Bay around a month after we had lost Chris.  I wanted to show people what is was like to lose a son to this terrible tragedy and how I felt so helpless.

From this the school raised over £1600 of which we bought a Lifesaving Raft and 6 Dry Rescue Suits for Ogwen Valley Rescue Team who amongst 70 others searched for my sons body.

Water Safety Workshops For Young People/Adults – Due to Covid19 Restrictions these are suspended until new information is provided by UK and Wales Government
