St Nicholas Church, Wells, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
A well-known name during the 70s and 80s from BBC Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night' and 'Listen to the Band', the Lewisham Concert Band remains one of the most highly-regarded wind bands in the south east, with a mix of professional and amateur musicians led by musical director John Hargreaves. Organised by Wells RNLI Guild, a contingent from the band will be treating us to a performance in Wells church on 20th October. Tickets available from Wells tourist information centre.

Join us at the Boathouse on Sunday 16 December for a Christmas Carol Service, with Fakenham Town Band and Wells Churches Together.
Planning permission has now been granted for a new lifeboat station at Wells to house our forthcoming Shannon-class all weather lifeboat. It is expected that building work will start in the Autumn of 2018 and take around 18 months to complete. The new Shannon class lifeboat should then come into service in the Spring or Summer of 2020.
Funding for the new lifeboat was raised in part with a station appeal for £250,000 in 2014-15 and also 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
