Colin and Rocky

Hi, I’m Colin and I live with Rocky my Search and Rescue dog at the Coastguard Cottage in a small fishing village called Tideswell.

I work as a Coastguard and together with Rocky, make sure that people are safe when they are at the seaside, on the cliffs or on the beach.

If anyone is in trouble I can quickly contact my friends who are always ready to help.
