Port Talbot RNLI Lifeboat Station receives MP visit
The station was recently visited by MP for Neath/Port Talbot, Mr Stephen Kinnock.
During the informal visit, Mr Kinnock met with the volunteer crew and was given a guided tour of the station. He was quite impressed by the work carried out in saving lives at sea and expressed his admiration for the crews who venture out in all weathers.
During his visit, Mr Kinnock presented with a station tie as a momento of his visit by the station's Lifeboat Operations Manager Clive Morris. Before leaving Mr Kinnock again thanked everyone for their commitment in the job that they do and wished all a safe year ahead.
