New Exmouth Lifeboat Management Group Chair: ready to take the helm
At a meeting on 26 April, Tim Baker handed over the role of Chair of the Exmouth Lifeboat Management Group after six years. He is succeeded by former Exmouth Mayor, Darryl Nicholas.
Tim chaired his last Lifeboat Management Group meeting on 26 April where Darryl Nicholas introduced himself. He now looks forward to familiarising himself with the numerous roles of Exmouth RNLI volunteers.
Lifeboat Operations Manager, Kevin Riley MBE commented:
National Communications and Public Relations Manager, Darryl was a clear
candidate to represent the activities of the charity that saves lives at sea,
to the local community. He has demonstrated a positive local profile and his
good leadership skills will direct the Lifeboat Management Group with
consideration for our area.’
The Lifeboat Management Group meet regularly to discuss all matters relating to the RNLI locally. The group comprises volunteers from Operations, Fundraising, Shop, Visits, Press, Coastal Safety and Lifeguards.

Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
