1st June 2020. With the restrictions in Wales easing slightly, the National Coastwatch Institution station on the Great Orme was one of the first stations to resume operations today.
Within hours of opening, the volunteer watchkeepers were involved in their first rescue incident. A sheep and her small lamb had fallen down a cliff and were entangled in some bushes. The watchkeepers were unable to make contact with the farmer so alerted the RSPCA who sent an Inspector from Anglesea to investigate. The animals were subsequently brought to safety.
Acting Station Manager John Humberstone reported “Mission accomplished happy mum and baby”.
