We would like to invite you to visit our Station and learn about the work we do.
Visits to the station are by appointment only and groups up to a maximum of 30 people (plus supervisors where required) can be accommodated. We can arrange visits for groups of all ages from nursery to our most elderly enthusiast and we will endeavour to tailor the experience to suit. Please can we ask, where possible, you give us a minimum of two weeks notice when requesting a visit/talk. This will allow us to confirm we can support and give us time to prepare.
Typically visits last for about one hour or more depending on the size of the party and can include:
- a tour of the building and its facilities, including the training room and kit room
- a chance to climb on-board the inshore lifeboat
- being shown the equipment carried
- an explanation of the crew's individual personal protective equipment (such as lifejackets, helmets and dry-suit)
- informative video/s about the RNLI and water safety
Visits can take place at most times dependant on crew availability. Please note that the station does remain 100% operational whilst your visit is taking place.
If a visit is not an option, why not invite the crew to your school, youth group or meeting. Enjoy one of our interactive presentations delivered by experienced speaker/s. Topics can include sea and beach safety, how lifeboat rescues work, the history of the RNLI, the work of the charity, volunteering and much more.
Although our visits / talks are free, as a charity we would be grateful for any donation you are able to make to help run the
lifeboats and lifeboat station.
To arrange a visit to the station or a talk at an external venue, please contact us either through our facebook page or via [email protected]
We look forward to hearing from you.
