Swanage RNLI welcomes back volunteer who has already given 50 years service!
We are welcoming back long standing RNLI volunteer, Dave Corben, who has just been appointed Chairman of Swanage Lifeboat Station.
At the age of 17 Dave joined the Coastguard Marine Cliff Rescue Team, a couple of years later he became a member of the Swanage lifeboat crew and is one of the RNLI’s longest serving crew members in the country.
