57th Annual Lifeboat Service

The Quay, 7pm

Join crew, launchers and station volunteers along with local residents and supporters on Wells Quay for the 57th 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.

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.

Shannon Latest

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
