through the gates can sometimes be difficult, but we are a friendly
bunch of volunteers, and we will welcome all enquiries, so come
in and see us. If you cannot attend on 9th July, pop into the
station during one of our regular Wednesday evening training sessions
or get in touch on Facebook."

there will be a way to make this possible. For example, many of
our lifeboat crew members start completely from scratch, and training
is willingly given. Being involved with a close team of volunteers
can provide much satisfaction, and a sense of achievement."
