THE Llandudno Lifeboat Visits Team has seized the opportunity to engage with the public once more by providing an information service in the outdoor area adjacent to its Shannon lifeboat.

The service proved to be popular with almost 700 people visiting during the Easter weekend and the early May bank holiday.

After two years of restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is gradually enabling public access to its stations.

Lifeboat Visits officer, Myfanwy Jones, said: “We have been delighted by the response to the access we are currently providing, and we look forward to gradually getting back to full use of our visitor centre as statutory restrictions and safety concerns permit.

“We are already able to take private tours of no more than eight people inside and we hope to extend this in due course.

Myfanwy also reported the sad passing of one of the original members of the Llandudno RNLI Visits Team, Ray Perkins.

She added: “Our delight at being together again has been tempered by the loss of our dear colleague and friend Ray Perkins.

“Ray was one of the first volunteers to join the team in 2017 and will be greatly missed by us all.”
