Karl Pearce

Role: Shore Crew / Trainee Head Launcher
Profession: Professional Driver
Years RNLI Service: Since 2017
Interests: Scuba Diving, Drone Pilot, Playing Guitar, Socialising, Chas N Dave, and Pie n Mash.
Why did I volunteer?: 
Through my past experience working in the NHS and my love of scuba diving, I found I had a lot to offer the RNLI. In the event of an emergency, I have always been someone who responds quickly and assists in any way I can. I love the fact I can contribute to my amazing community and have created great friendships with my new lifeboat family.

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.
