Burnham-On-Sea RNLI appeals for more shore crew volunteers

More volunteers are being sought to help launch Burnham-On-Sea RNLI's lifeboats as two of the group's shore team have progressed to probationary boat crew status.

No experience is necessary because training will be provided, says the RNLI.

"All that is needed is a common sense attitude to life, the ability to commit oneself to regular training, and basic physical fitness, within the generally accepted age limits - over the age of 18," added a spokesman.

"Applicants may be male or female, as the RNLI is an equal opportunities organization, and ideally should be able to attend the lifeboat station quickly when paged for emergency attendance."

Prospective volunteers should attend a Wednesday evening training session from 7.30pm, and make themselves known to a member of the lifeboat station management team, where they will be able to discuss requirements in detail.

Lifeboat Operations Manager Matt Davies said: "Working within the RNLI can be very satisfying, and team members often develop life-long friendships. Shore team members may progress to boat crew, if young enough, or become involved in tractor driving. Of course, this is also dependent on operational requirements. Come along and meet us."
