Christmas Carol Service

Congregational Church, Clubbs Lane, 7pm - 8.30pm

Unfortunately, due to the construction of our new boathouse, we are unable to hold our usual Christmas Carols at the Boathouse event. However, we are delighted that a Carol Service has been arranged at the Congregational church on Clubbs Lane, Wells next the Sea, NR23 1DU from 7pm to 8.30pm on Sunday 19th December. This will include Fakenham Town Band and refreshments afterwards as usual and there will be a collection for Wells RNLI.

All are invited and it would be lovely to see you there.

Boathouse Build

New boathouse build
Latest update 29/10/2021

Steady progress has been made with the new lifeboat station building. See boathouse build pages for more information.

The new building will will take around 18 months to complete with work preparing the foundations and piling for the building and ramp having taken place from September 2020 to May 2021.

The building is required to house our forthcoming new Shannon-class lifeboat which was funded 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
