Wells-next-the-Sea RNLI Lifeboat Station houses an all-weather lifeboat and an inshore lifeboat to save lives and assist with emergencies around Wells and off the North Norfolk coast. Manned by volunteer crews, the boats are ready to launch within minutes, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. This website will tell you more about the station and give you a taste of what we do and the traditions of the lifeboat service.
Lord Leicester, Patron and President of RNLI Wells Lifeboat Station, died at Midnight on Friday 24th April. During his 37 years of office he always placed a high priority on the needs of the Station and showed a great respect for the crew and volunteers. He has been actively involved in helping to bring the new Shannon Lifeboat to Wells and we have been honoured to count him amongst our number. We are saddened by his passing and our thoughts are with his family.
