Return to Dunkirk - Presentation by Rescue Wooden Boats

Wells Sailing Club, 7.30pm

The Rescue Wooden Boats charity is presently restoring the RNLI Liverpool class lifeboat and Dunkirk Little Ship Lucy Lavers, built in 1940 for Aldeburgh but which later served at Wells and other stations on the east coast as a relief boat.

The intention is to take the lifeboat back by sea to Dunkirk in May 2015 for the 75th anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuation. It is expected that 50 veteran Little Ships, escorted by the RNLI and Royal Navy, will be crossing the channel in convoy from Ramsgate to Dunkirk.

Anyone with an interest is invited to Wells Sailing Club on 14 November when Rescue Wooden Boats will be giving a presentation about progress with the boat and the project. The trust is seeking volunteers to help with the restoration and preparation for the trip and with the passage and return to Dunkirk itself, which will be over several days, with stops currently planned for Lowestoft, Aldeburgh, Harwich and Ramsgate.

Please come along... and please get involved!

Treat yourself and a friend to a lovely meal and an after-dinner talk at this traditional inn on the Buttlands in Wells. Tickets are £20 per person for a two course meal with a glass of wine and include a £5 donation towards our Shannon lifeboat appeal. See our events listing or contact the Globe for more details.

It's going cold, dark and windy...

... for the winter months along the North Norfolk coast. But you wouldn't mind if you were wearing the authentic hand-knitted fisherman's gansey offered in our Shannon Lifeboat Appeal prize draw. Get a ticket from the Tourist Information Centre on Staithe Street or the Soap Shop on the quay before the draw at the RNLI Christmas Bazaar on November 8th. More....
