Why did I volunteer?: 

I grew up in Cromer and was always aware of the lifeboat station but never really knew what it involved.  I had thought about joining before I took the plunge - I didn’t think I had enough time - however, once I found out more, and the commitment involved, I decided I could take on the role.


It is a privilege to volunteer for the RNLI. I have been on the crew for nearly 8 years now, and have loved every minute of it.  In Cromer we are also just like a big family, we all support each other both within and outside the RNLI.

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.
