Times running out to get your tickets for the 2018 Posh Pirates Ball. This is a ticket only event and we only have a small handful remaining due to people being, unfortunately, unable to attend – Contact us today to order yours

Training Held By Stephen Cary Fund

On Thursday 24th May, at Boulmer Village Hall, a familiarisation session for the new defibrillator was held. The defib is situated at Boulmer Lifeboat Station.

Members of the community and Lifeboat crew were in attendance to refresh and learn CPR and how to use the defibrillator. The session was made extremely special as Stephen’s younger brother James was there to support the fund.

A huge thank you to The Stephen Cary fund for the new first aid equipment which they kindly supplied and donated to our lifeboat. It is very much appreciated.

Well Done !
