The evening also coincided with the presentation of a 30 Year Long Service Medal to Third Mechanic Steve Tattersall. The medal was presented to him by former Lizard Lifeboat Coxswain Philip Burgess and Boat House Manager Jeff Ashby who Steve began his RNLI career with. Steve first joined the station on his 17th birthday back in 1991 where he served as shore crew for 17 years before transferring to lifeboat crew in 2008. During this time Steve has worked his way up to the position of Third Mechanic and is a much valued member of The Lizard RNLI crew.

Huge thanks to the Falmouth RNLI crew and to The Top House Inn for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
