8th September 2019. NCI Hengistbury Head decided to produce a 25th Anniversary photograph with a difference!
In order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the National Coastwatch Institution, the volunteer watchkeepers at the National Coastwatch station at Hengistbury Head decided to assemble a flotilla of small boats in the area below their watch station and, hopefully, form them into a meaningful formation. After several attempts, with varying degrees of success, the final rendezvous took place on 30th August. Despite some pretty tricky conditions for all the vessels taking part, they were finally able to form the letters “HH” for Hengistbury Head, allowing the station to take a unique photograph to celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary.
