RNLI Moelfre Lifeboats Have a Fluffy Namesake

Lifeboats News Release

Here at Moelfre Lifeboat Station we are delighted to hear that the pupils and staff of Ysgol Gymuned Moelfre have recently given a home to two cute guinea pigs.

The children asked for the guinea pigs and wanted to name them after our two RNLI lifeboats at Moelfre.

The two cuddly pets have been named Enfys and Kiwi. Enfys is our inshore lifeboat and Kiwi is our all-weather lifeboat.

Thank you to Ysgol Gymuned Moelfre for welcoming our volunteer crew members, where we were able to meet the new namesakes, along with the caring pupils and staff.

For further information, please contact Phil Williams, Moelfre Lifeboat Press Officer, on 07773 979910
