Fleetwood Station gets a demo Inshore Lifeboat

It will be used for mainly fundraising activities by the the Fleetwood crew and our neighbouring stations. There may be opportunities to visit local schools and fetes. Peter Atkinson from the Fleetwood station said «This is fantastic news for us following many months of campaigning. It will be used for our sponsored Lifeboat Pull as well as Tram Sunday and local carnivals.»
Sunday 6th April, second coxswain Gary Randles takes over as coxswain. Paul Ashworth stood down to become second coxswain so in effect they exchanged places. Paul said «It’s getting harder and harder to get my zimmer frame down those steep ladders»

Gary is looking forward to taking the helm and the big responsibilty that the position brings.
