WEST PENWITH NCI STATIONS ATTEND ST BURYAN STEAM RALLY

31/072022. The annual two-day St Buryan steam rally took place this weekend and the National Coastwatch Institution stations at Cape Cornwall and Gwennap Head both had stalls at the event.

Gwennap Head had a ‘human fruit machine’ which proved to be very popular, while next door the volunteers of Cape Cornwall had a tombola and a range of NCI branded merchandise for sale. The stalls proved very popular with visitors and raised much needed funds for the stations. Amongst the many visitors who visited the stalls was local MP Derek Thomas who was accompanied by MP Andrew Stephenson, Chairman of the Conservative Party.

About

Currently almost 60 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Filey in North Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
