Newfoundland Dog Rescue Display

The Quay, 2.30pm approx*

These popular and remarkable rescue dogs will be back in action at the quayside at Wells next-the Sea on Sunday 8th July. The event is free to watch (just turn up and bag a good spot) but a bucket collection for the RNLI will be taken during the display. The inshore lifeboat will also come down to the quayside if available. Our thanks, as always, to the dogs and their owners for coming down and putting on a show.

*Start time can vary a bit on the day... best to arrive a bit early and find somewhere with a good view.

Join crew, launchers and station volunteers along with local residents and supporters on Wells Quay for the 57th annual lifeboat service.

Shannon Latest

A planning application has been submitted for the new lifeboat station to house our forthcoming Shannon-class all weather lifeboat. You can view the plans at the council's offices in Cromer or on-line on the North Norfolk District Council website.

Funding for the new lifeboat was raised in part with a station appeal for £250,000 in 2014-15 and in part by the Civil Service charity The Lifeboat Fund with its 150th Anniversary Appeal. We are hugely grateful to everyone who has donated, fund-raised, helped and supported us both locally and across the UK and even further afield. Your contribution is appreciated and will help to save lives and keep our volunteeer crews safe in the years to come. Read more about the station appeal
