Amos Bewick has been presented with an award for 21 years of outstanding service.
Amos was presented with his award by his colleagues at the Borth RNLI lifeboat station on Sunday 30 September. Amos left the station in 2015 because he had taken an opportunity to help a community in Africa. He is currently back in Borth on holiday.
The station manager, Ron Davies, took this opportunity to acknowlegde the 21 years of service that Amos gave to the station. During his time on station Amos had been awarded a Bronze Gallantry medal for saving a life in very difficult and dangerous conditions.
