RNLI Welly moves along Norfolk Coast

May is the traditional month for the ‘Welly’ fundraising by the RNLI. Yellow badges are sold in all shops and outlets connected to the RNLI.

Last week Cromer RNLI had the great pleasure of being given the welly before venturing out to hand it over to Sheringham RNLI.

Richard Leeds –Lifeboat Operations Manager said, ‘Bringing to the publics attention the ‘Welly’ campaign is only part of our work. Raising such vital funds allows the RNLI to continue its work on helping those in trouble at sea’.

He also reminded everyone about the Open Boathouse at the end of Cromer Pier on Sunday 27 May, 10 am to 1pm.

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.
