Coxwain Steve Emmerson leads Bridlington RNLI Crew

Members of the RNLI Bridlington Lifeboat crew were in attendance at this year’s remembrance service on Sunday 13 November 2022 at the War Memorial, Wellington Road, Bridlington. The crew were led by Station Coxswain Steve Emmerson who headed the RNLI volunteers from Station Approach to the War Memorial.

Hundreds attended the Remembrance Day service at the Bridlington War Memorial, which was led by Reverend Mark Carey. The parade included representatives from all the armed services to honour those fallen in war. Lifeboat volunteers have, for many years, taken part in the parade through the town.

Each year a representative from the lifeboat station is chosen to lay a wreath at the memorial, this year the honour went to mechanic and long-term volunteer Dave Coverdale who has been volunteer crew for over 33 years. Dave said ‘It was an honour to be given the opportunity to lay a wreath on behalf of the RNLI at Bridlington for those in the Armed forces that have sacrificed their lives and to pay tribute to the special contribution of families and that of the emergency services'.
