Fifteen members of the Penmachno branch of the Welsh ladies' organisation called Merched y Wawr, which is similar to the Women's Institute, visited Llandudno lifeboat station a few days ago.


Llandudno Visitor Team volunteers Gaynor Stythe-Jones and Phill Williams with Merched y Wawr

The group were hosted by Visitor Team volunteers Gaynor Stythe-Jones and Phill Williams along with volunteer Deputy Launching Authority Alun Pari Huws. The ladies received a tour of the lifeboat station, viewed rescue footage, learned about the history of lifesaving with the RNLI and looked over the station's two lifeboats. All the visitors were impressed and particularly enlightened by the interior of the Shannon Class all-weather lifeboat. The host team were delighted with the level of interest and the many pertinent questions.
