Role: Shore Crew / Winch Operator / Visits Officer / Management Committee

Why did I volunteer?: 
Having just taken early retirement I wanted to continue to be of service having spent 43 years in health helping people, originally starting out as a Royal Navy Medic, Paramedic and specialising in Operating Theatres. I have always worked in teams and the RNLI allowed me to carry on doing this. It's an honour to be part of Cromer 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.
