Darrel has recently been active in the flooding at Rhyl and Mid-Wales, and was a team member at Cockermouth and St.Asaph in recent years.

At the dinner, Coxswain Martin Jones said in his speech “Rhyl station was the busiest station in Wales in 2013, and we have had 4 call-outs already this year”. Martin thanked his crew and their partners for all their hard work and effort, also he thanked the various Fundraising members for their support.

The dinner was attended by many representatives of the various maritime and supporting organisations around the Rhyl area; also Ann Jones, Welsh Assembly member; and Andy Rutherford, Rhyl town mayor with their respective consorts.

Coxswain Jones also added that he hoped that the work of Rhyl’s volunteer crews with the offshore lifeboat would be continued at the end of the present boat’s working life in a few years’ time.
