The Lifeboat is one of
around 60 independent Lifeboats set up around the country, who
are not part of the RNLI and receive no funding from them,
although we do work together on exercises and call-outs. On the
sub menus you will find all the information about the station,
including photos of the crew and the Lifeboat currently on
station, as well as a history of the station and also of the
call-outs that we have attended.
The next call-out could come
at any time, day or night, and the crew will always attend,
whether they are at home or in work. Our crew come from all
walks of life, we have students, a mechanic, a postman, a computer consultant and also a finance manager on the crew.
We currently have over 20 crew members who are trained to the
highest possible standard, so that when the call comes in, they
will respond in the best possible way.
