Why did I volunteer?: 
Sometimes I wonder myself, but it’s a feeling of being able to contribute to a wonderful group of people.  I have learnt a lot, things I would never have encountered in the past.  Making the community aware of how hardworking our volunteer crew are, makes the job worthwhile.  It’s worth it, so join us.

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.
