Why did I volunteer?: 

My Dad spent many years in the fire service before joining the crew at RNLI Cromer.  He told me about the feeling of being part of a group that cares about each other as well as the general public.  I also feel it is important to be able to give back to my local community.

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.
