Branch Chair of Weymouth RNLI station stands down
Rob Michael who was the Branch Chair of Weymouth lifeboat station has had to stand down from the role due to health reasons.
Rob held the post of Branch Chair for nearly 5 years after taking up the role when he moved to Weymouth from Lyme Regis. At Lyme Regis he was the Chair of the fund raising committee for 10 years, which runs Lyme Regis lifeboat week and is a huge fund raiser for the RNLI. Rob was awarded a bronze medal by the RNLI for his hard work.
Weymouth lifeboat station is now looking for a replacement for Rob. The role of Branch Chair is voluntary, mostly managerial and involves the chairing of meetings and fronting of public events that the station runs so the ability to speak in public to large numbers is a must for this post.
Anyone who is interested in doing this important role within the RNLI lifeboat station they should contact the station on 01305 785817
