The Lifeboat Education and Visits officer, Derek Denton, explained that the notice boards were no longer supported by the RNLI, and had to be provided locally. The guides made a decision after their tour to provide a new board so that the services carried out by Rhyl RNLI lifeboat volunteers could be recorded for public viewing.

A series of fundraising events (including a sponsored silence) were undertaken by the guides, resulting in sufficient money to be made available to get a new notice board built and signwritten, and the guides notified Rhyl station that the funding was available, so the crew could give the go-ahead to a local joiner to construct the signs.

The guides returned to Rhyl to meet Derek and Station Operations Manager Darrel Crowther, to present a token cheque to them to pay for the work to be completed. The guides will return once the new notice board is in place and fully signwritten with the lifeboat’s services up to date.

Ther attached picture shows the guides “presenting” Derek (left) and Darrel (right) with the funds.
