This Sunday volunteer land and sea crews didn’t take part in the usual training. Instead, we were honoured to have been asked to help a local family with the scattering of a loved-one’s ashes at sea.

We understand the great affection many people have for this area and why the sea is so important to so many. Being asked to support with this is all part of being amongst the community and we’re happy to serve and to help with the practical assistance needed to fulfil a loved one’s last wishes.

Our thoughts remain with everyone concerned and we are extremely appreciative of the generous donation received as a thank you for our services: it’s a privilege for the Pett Level Inshore Rescue Boat teams be able to help in this way.
