These events are designed for lifejacket users on the Thames, to learn from RNLI crew how to check their own lifejacket for wear and tear, and simple maintenance tasks like replacing gas bottles and firing heads
The first clinic is at Teddington lifeboat station at 1pm on Saturday 23rd of September. Places for this and the following four clinics can be booked online.
