Mundesley Lifeboat Fundraising
Mundesley Lifeboat would once again like to thank The Costessey Bush PH for their generous donation of £1500. This was received at our annual darts match against The Bush. We lost that leg 5-1 and are ready for the return leg at Mundesley.
Below is a picture of our Coxswain Wayne and Gary from the Bush.
New Search Lights for ILB Mundesley Lifeboat have recently purchased some new LED torches from Unilite. They were instantly put into use this week on a night time shout searching for 13 missing runners on a coastline marathon.
New Hot Water Cylinder for boathouse Mundesley Lifeboat would like to thanks Warmflow Cylinders providing a new hot water cylinder for the lifeboat station allowing crew to have a hot shower after callouts. Below is a picture of the new cylinder along with heating engineer and crewmember Stuart.
New Slipway October-15
Civil engineering company Godfrey have commenced construction of a replacement slipway access to the beach near the Lifeboat Station.
The existing beach access for fishing boats and the Lifeboat is difficult and potentially dangerous
with tractors and boats having to carry out a zig-zag manoeuvre close to a steep drop onto the sand.
The existing concrete slope is also awash from the sea for several hours during high spring tides.
The new slipway has been jointly funded by North Norfolk District Council and the Fisherman’s
Local Action Group (FLAG) and work is well advanced.
The new wooden slipway will allow for direct safe access to the beach for both working fishing boats and
the Lifeboat Service at a higher point up the beach.

Training with Search and Rescue Helicopters - 29th March 2015
The day of 29th March 2015 proved to a busy one for the crew and friends of Mundesley Lifeboat.The day was broken into two where the morning session was spent training with the new coastguard helicopter based in Humberside.Intensive training included static and running winches with the lifeboat and Augusta Westland helicopter, helping the crew to understand how different it is compared to the existing RAF Sea King Helicopter from Wattisham.
Following this training in the afternoon Mundesley Lifeboat was visited by Sea King 125 from the RAF base at Wattisham. The base is being closed this year and it will be the last time that we will be able to train with the iconic Sea King helicopter.
Again the Lifeboat took part in static and running winches and also crew were recovered from the sea and ferried to a landing site on the cliff set up by Mundesley and Happisburgh Coastguard team.
After training was complete the Sea King set down at the landing site and the friends of Mundesley Lifeboat presented the crew of the Sea King with a cake commemorating the working partnership for over 43 Years.
