Tea and cake

As we start to emerge from covid with vaccinations and boosters in full flow tea and cake over summer has reached a high yet again thanks to our cohort of fund raisers of Jenny, Paula, Clare, Janet and Beryl.

Swanage at low tide!

Could this be a record? It is certainly a very low tide as the picture below shows. The furthest rocks seen are not normally as prominant as in the photograph



 Rememberance Sunday

Rememberance Sunday started with a parade from shore road to St Marys church where a rememberance service was held followed by a parade to the war memorial.


Rememberance 2021





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.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
