Volunteer crew members Kerry Barnes and Luke Rogers have received their lifeboat pagers from coxswain Robin Castle at the lifeboat station in Sheerness Docks.
Robin said: 'Kerry and Luke have trained intensively, twice a week, for the last year to earn their pagers. They have both made a tremendous effort and will be valued members of our volunteer crew. Well done and welcome aboard.'
Sheerness RNLI recently had a very busy bank holiday weekend, launching four times to various incidents on the coastline.
