Role: ILB Helm / ALB Crew
Joined: 2012
Interests: Family
Profession: Associate Ambulance Practitioner
Why did I volunteer?: 

As well as being professionals, we are also just like a big family. We all support each other and work together as a team both within and outside the RNLI. I joined in 2012 and haven’t looked back since!

Overall, being a crew member has allowed me to become a more confident individual and it is extremely rewarding. It is a big commitment but the skills and experience gained have benefited me in all aspects of my life.

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.
