We would also like to acknowledge and thank the CMCF (Cornwall Masonic Charitable Foundation) for their substantial financial support in the installation of the defibrillator which is positioned on the winch house wall, just above the lifeboat station. The defibrillator is dedicated to the memory of Mr John Purchas.
