Happy 50th Anniversary St Catherine's Lifeboat!

07/10/2019

 

Today RNLI Jersey are celebrating 50 years of St Catherine's lifeboat station. 

 

A station was first opened at St Catherine's on 7 October 1969 on the north side of Gibraltar Rock, where a small D Class lifeboat was stationed in an old German war tunnel. 

 

In the following 50 years, the station has moved twice and seen five different lifeboats permanently deployed, and the volunteers there have saved numerous lives.

 

On Saturday 5th October we celebrated with a delicious lunch at the station with our families and friends.

 

Thank you for your support. Cheers to 50 years!
