Ady Woods

Role: Deputy Coxswain / Helmsman
Profession: Glass Technician
Years in Service: 30 Years
Interests: Running, Retained Fireman, family, photography, canoeing, fishing - crabbing, wildlife and being outdoors.
Why did I volunteer?: 
I always had a passion for the water and enjoyed crabbing at the weekends and I always figured that if I got in trouble whilst on the water, someone would put their life on the line for me, therefore I needed to do the same for them.

In Cromer there are two boathouses, one for the All-Weather Lifeboat "Lester" on the pier and the other for the Inshore Lifeboat on the east promenade. This boathouse was originally built in 1902 for the then rowing and sailing lifeboat Louisa Heartwell. Also on the east promenade you'll find the Henry Blogg Lifeboat Museum. The whole town is proud of the man referred to as 'the greatest of the lifeboatmen', who gained national fame in the first half of the 20th century when navigation around the Norfolk coastline was particularly hazardous in easterly gales.
