8th September 2019. Watchkeepers from NCI Mablethorpe were invited to visit their local HM Coastguard base in Humberside.
A small group of the volunteer watchkeepers from the National Coastwatch Institution station at Mablethorpe were entertained by the local HM Coastguard helicopter base at Humberside Airport. Here they were able to get a close-up look at the rescue helicopter and learn how it works with the rest of the SAR organisation.
Keith Arthey from NCI Mablethorpe said about HM Coastguard “We thank them for their welcome and a constructive tour. This brings the total of watch keepers from NCI Mablethorpe to 99% who have been invited to their base of operation”. The watchkeepers who visited the helicopter base were Charles Elliott, Karen Johnson, Kathryn Nicholson, Glenys Glazebrook and Amanda Wain.
