Wells lifeboats and the lifeboat crew remain operational and ready to launch if needed during the coronavirus outbreak. However, training and exercises and all public visits to the lifeboat station are cancelled. Please do not enter the boathouse except by prior arrangement.
All our usual public and fund-raising events and activities are on-hold at the moment and may not take place as planned.
Planning permission has been granted for a new lifeboat station at Wells to house our forthcoming Shannon-class all weather lifeboat but legal work relating to the new site has taken longer than expected and all building projects have been suspended during the coronavirus outbreak. The new building will will take around 18 months to complete.
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
