2020: Watch a year of lifesaving
It’s been a difficult and challenging year for everyone – including our lifesavers, who were still on call 24/7. Take a look at this whopping rescue compilation, featuring footage from 40 rescues during the past year.

possible. Bearing in mind current circumstances are going to mean another
postponement to our AGM.

Collection Box returns via
businesses around the area,
as and when we can collect them in.
Christmas Cards - despite the current circumstances we are delighted to
report that Kildale Marine managed to sell over £335 worth of cards for
us. A great effort on their behalf.
Finally, some sad news to report that one of our supporters Pim Van Ling
sadly passed away last year. We were always delighted when Pim was able
to help with our Flag Days and Collections and the Branch has extended
our condolences to his wife Susan and family.
BEST WISHES TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS -
