The newly qualified mechanics

Joff Pearson and Jordan Harrison, two of the lifeboat station’s volunteer crew, have now qualified as mechanics after working hard through their training plan requirements for the past six months to become fully operational in the mechanics role on service calls.

The success further bolsters the amount of qualified mechanics at the station. Both volunteers were put through their paces during a rather surprising calm winters day on the all-weather lifeboat throughout the day.

All the team at the charity’s lifeboat station offer ‘congratulations’ to both and a huge ‘well done’.
