Wells RNLI transferred operations from its 127 year old lifeboat station on Wells beach to the new boathouse nearby on the beach bank on Sunday 13/11/22. The Mersey was moved from the old boathouse and joined the Shannon and inshore lifeboat on the beach for photographs with crew past and present as well as families and friends. In a short ceremony attended by station president Lord Leicester, the eldest members of the station present lowered the flag on the old building and it was then raised by retired Hon Sec Richard Cracknell on the new.
Our thanks to Chris Taylor for coming to photograph the handover. More pictures of the day by Chris can be seen (and prints ordered) on his website
