Cubs Visit Tynemouth Life Boat

Our cub pack travelled across the river to learn about the very important work of the RNLI and Tynemouth Lifeboat Station.

 

Tynemouth RNLI lifeboat station is one of the 236 operated by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution throughout the UK and Ireland. The station and its volunteer crew provides a round the clock marine search and rescue service covering local coasts and up to 100 nautical miles out to sea. They are located on the historic North Shields Fish Quay, just inside the mouth of the River Tyne on the North East coast of England.

Since the station was founded in 1862 Tynemouth lifeboats and volunteers have launched 2160 times on service, rescuing or bringing in 1867 people and saving 886 lives.
