First call of the main school holiday period for R N L I Beaumaris lifeboat.
At the request of H. M Coastguard the volunteer crew members of the R N L I Beaumaris lifeboat were paged at 8.31 pm on Saturday 16 July 2016 to assist a vessel in difficulties by Fryars’ Bay on the Menai Straits.
Interested in becoming a crew member?
The charity welcomes people from all walks of life and no previous sea-going experience is needed to join the lifeboat crew. The RNLI provides fantastic training to turn ordinary people into lifesavers. By volunteering with the RNLI people will gain some great experience, knowledge and skills.
Beaumaris RNLI are always looking for new volunteers to help run the lifesaving service. If you are aged 17 or over, physically fit, work or live within 10 minutes of the lifeboat station and eager to join a lifesaving organisation then please come by and say hello.
The volunteers meet every Thursday evenings at 6.00pm for their weekly training exercises.
