Lifeboat Open Evening

The Boathouse, 6.30pm

Come along to the boathouse to meet the crew and see the boats on our popular summer holiday open evenings. There's usually a short talk about the station followed by a chance for visitors to ask crew and station volunteers any questions they have and an opportunity for some of the children to dress up in full RNLI kit. After this, you can go aboard the all-weather and inshore lifeboats and be shown through their equipment. These events are very popular so you may have to queue for a short while or you may prefer to come a little later in the evening. Souvenirs will be on sale.

Younger visitors also have the chance to sit in our inshore lifeboat and perhaps try some of our kit for size.

Wells Shannon
Lifeboat Appeal
target reached!

After 17 months fund-raising, we reached our target to raise £250,000 towards a new Shannon-class lifeboat for Wells and the North Norfolk coast.

We are hugely grateful to everyone who has donated, fund-raised, helped and supported us both locally and from right 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.
