Lifeboat Open Evening

The Boathouse, 6.30pm - 9pm approx

The first of our popular Summer open evenings where you're warmly invited to come along to the boathouse to meet the crew and see the boats. 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.

Join crew, launchers and station volunteers along with local residents and supporters on Wells Quay for the 55th annual lifeboat service. Both lifeboats launch and run up to the quayside for a short service with hymns and readings. The lifeboats are joined by a flotilla of local small boats which anchor in the channel to take part and Fakenham Town Band provides the music.

55th Annual Lifeboat Service

Please join us at Wells quayside at 7pm on Sunday 2 August. Both lifeboats launch and run up to the quayside for a short service with hymns and readings. The lifeboats are joined by a flotilla of local small boats which anchor in the channel to take part, with crew, shore helpers, guild members and their families and many local residents and visitors to the town attending. Music provided by the redoubtable Fakenham Town Band.

Open evenings

As usual, we're holding open evenings at the boathouse on Wednesday nights throughout the school summer holidays from 6.30pm to around 9pm. There'a chance to learn a bit about the station's history and how we operate and to meet the crew and to step aboard the all-weather lifeboard. Children usually also get a chance to try on some of our kit and to get a close up look at our inshore lifeboat.

Charity Golf Match
at Weston Park

We're holding our popular Charity Golf Day at Weston Park again this year on 27 August, with funds being raised towards the new Shannon class Lifeboat for Wells. Team entries are invited and we'd also like to hear from anyone who wants to sponsor a hole or donate a raffle prize... for more information or to download a poster or entry form, see our event listing.
