RNLI Salcombe Festive Gathering & Calling ‘Old Salts’

Following carols on Whitestrand on Thursday 20th December, there will be a gathering in the Ships Bar of the Fortescue Inn to which all ex-crew are invited.
It would be great to see as many ex-crew, shore crew and enthusiastic supporters as possible to share memories, celebrate the festive season and discuss next years 150th Anniversary celebrations and enjoy a pint or two. There will also be pizza for those requiring sustenance.

Calling Old Salts for Remembrance Sunday

As usual, the Salcombe Lifeboat Crew will be parading at this year’s Remembrance Day parade on Sunday 11th November.  We would love to see former crew, shore crew and station officers at the parade and hope to form a platoon just aft of today’s crew.  No need to let us know – just dust off your blazer, pin your medals on and assemble at the Station at 1000 on Sunday.

150th Anniversary Year Launch Dinner


80 friends of Salcombe Lifeboat were treated to a fantastic dinner last night courtesy of the very generous South Sands Hotel.  The main aim of the dinner was to bring together supporters at the start of the 150th anniversary year, feed and water them well and hopefully gather some much needed funds for Salcombe Lifeboat.  Due entirely to the commitment and support of our generous prize and other donors, this mission was well and truly accomplished and we raised a substantial sum on the night.  A special thanks to all our sponsors and guests.

The South Sands Hotel, Luscombe May, Prue Leith (who has a new book out), The Salcombe Distilling Company, Salcombe Brewery, Steevenson Wines, The Private Cellar, the Milbrook Inn (Southpool), Glebe House B&B (Southpool), Helly Hansen, Beatrice Jenkins Scarves, Bibendum Wines, Celtic Fish & Game, Brixham Shellfish, Cornish Farm Produce, Forest Produce, and Salcombe Dairy.

RNLI Salcombe Autumn Fair

August Open Day

With more than a thousand visitors on the day and more than £500 in donations collected, RNLI Salcombe Lifeboats can certainly claim to have had another amazing Open Day on Wednesday 15th August.
Two lifeboat enthusiasts from Yorkshire, brothers George (7) and Toby (5) Morrell on holiday in Salcombe, decided to spend their day selling homemade scones and in doing so raised more than £80. However, this meant they missed out on the tour of the lifeboats, rectified of course by Coxswain Chris Winzar and Mechanic Sam Viles who gave them a ‘peek’ when George and Toby came to the lifeboat station with their amazing donation.
A massive thanks to all who made it a rather special day, included in that, the many members of our volunteer crew who gave their time – becoming ‘tour guides’ for a day.
