Moelfre-school-children-visit-new-£10-Million-Moelfre-RNLI-lifeboat-station

Byline: Volunteer RNLI crewmembers proudly showed off the brand new Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station to the local primary school children yesterday.
Page Content: The children were treated to an educational talk on the Moelfre lifeboat and station by the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station visits officer Steve Owen.

All the children were shown the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat ‘Kiwi’ from the public viewing platform. They were also shown the spacious crew changing room and all the protective personal clothing the RNLI provide all their volunteer crew. They were also shown the unique table in the crew room which was crafted from the timbers taken from the old Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station roof structure by volunteer crewmember Dwynwen Parry.

Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station volunteer press officer Dave Massey said:

‘It was an absolute pleasure to show the local children the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat ‘Kiwi’ and the modern RNLI lifeboat station we now have. I would like to thank the headmistress Mrs Jones, and the other members of the teaching staff for bringing the children down. They were all interested and impressed by both the RNLI lifeboat and the modern station. I feel it is vitally important to educate the local children in the work of the lifesaving charity. We need to remember that it is their lifeboat and station and the young children who visited yesterday are the next generation of Moelfre RNLI volunteer crewmembers’.

 

Ends.
