Year 1 Lifeboat station visit

Donation for Margate lifeboat and educating children on sea safety


Margate RNLI has received a donation from Cliftonville Primary School following a visit to the station by their pupils which is to be followed by a talk on sea safety from local RNLI lifeguards.


It was a big day out for pupils of the whole of year one when ninety in total were shown around the lifeboat station and allowed on board the all-weather lifeboat. The RNLI’s Respect the Water campaign includes educating people of all ages of the dangers associated with enjoying the sea and shoreline and the local RNLI lifeguards are now also planning a visit to the school to tell them of their work and highlight the potential dangers.


Peter Barker, volunteer lifeboat press officer, Margate lifeboat station said: “We welcome visitors of all ages to the station and these occasions are particularly rewarding when we have the opportunity to educate young people on the potential dangers while enjoying the beauty of our sea and shoreline.”
