Members of the public in Milford Haven will have the opportunity to learn more about becoming part of a life-saving crew of volunteers tomorrow (Saturday).
RNLI Angle’s state-of-the-art Tamar class all-weather lifeboat will spearhead a campaign at Milford Marina on Saturday to recruit volunteer crew members from the town.
The charity, which saves lives at sea, offers potential crew members one of the most fulfilling voluntary opportunities around, with first-class training, equipment and support.
It is believed to be the first time that Angle lifeboat station has recruited from the Milford area.
Angle coxswain Andy Elliot and volunteer crew members will be at the Sail Loft, Milford Marina, from 3.30pm to 4.45pm on Saturday to meet potential new crew members, explain the requirements and answer any questions.
Successful candidates who join the crew will be collected from Milford Haven when the lifeboat is launched on service.
The RNLI’s volunteer crew members are the backbone of the lifeboat service and are available 24 hours a day, whatever the weather, to rescue those who need help at sea.
If you are able to make the commitment and want to become part of a close-knit unit, you can meet Andy and his team at Milford Marina on Saturday or contact Andy at Angle lifeboat station on 01646 641204.
There are more than 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members at stations around the UK and the Republic of Ireland, as well as 3,000 volunteer shore crew members who support them.
