Flank Stations Visit for New Year
Yesterday Saturday 5th January 2019 we were visited by our flank stations.
It was good to see both crews and a chance for everyone to get together for a chat and some burgers at the start of the New Year.
We look forward to working together on some joint exercises in the coming year.
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.
