New Shannon Lifeboat Arrives

Our colleagues at the RNLI are preparing to welcome Swanage's new 'Shannon' class all-weather lifeboat when it arrives in its new home at 12.00 noon today, and family, friends, supporters and members of the public are invited to the pier area to welcome it in.

The crew have been getting familiar with the George Thomas Lacy for a little while now, and the lifeboat blog has plenty of pictures and details of the training and build up for the big day.

The Coastguard Team will be there to see the boat home and we wish the crew and their new vessel good luck and safe travels in their future rescues and we look forward to continuing to work with you.
