Historic Lifeboat Festival

The Quay

A gathering of preserved and restored lifeboats on the quayside in Wells organised by the Rescue Wooden Boats charity and private vessel owners. This is hoped to include at least six boats, including Dunkirk little ship and ex-Aldeburgh Liverpool class boat 'Lucy Lavers', former Wells station boat the Oakley class 'Ernest Tom Nethercoat' and ex-Buckie lifeboat, 47' Watson class 'Laura Moncur', normally mooored at Lowestoft.

As well as a vessel parade, the 'Lucy Lavers' will be offering trips afloat and there will be stalls and model displays.

Lifeboat Open Evening

The Boathouse, 6.30pm

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.

The RNLI's Stormy Stan is planning to attend, subject to operational requirements.

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.
