RNLI Talk and Boat Club Meeting 3rd March 23

Thanks to everyone who turned up to our monthly First Friday Boat Club meeting last night at David Lloyds
An entertaining evening with a great talk from Pete Barnard MBE on the RNLI history, boats and procedures with free gifts and expert advice on offer for those who made the evening.
There was also a free life jacket clinic where Pete and his colleagues checked lifejackets and advised on actions to be taken to ensure they are fully operational should they be required in an emergency. Thanks to Mike Waldron, Commodore for volunteering to be the lifejacket test model…
£100 was donated to the RNLI on the evening
