REMEOur Army Reserve friends at 119 Recovery Company REME in Prestatyn are holding a recruiting campaign this weekend (12th and 13th December) in Rhyl. As part of this recruitment drive, they contacted the station to see if they could carry out a joint winching/recovery exercise to firm up the joint workings and methods between the Army and the RNLI, should any of the RNLI launch and recovery equipment become bogged down on the beach at Rhyl.
The volunteers at Rhyl were only too happy to oblige and have agreed that a winching/recovery exercise will take place at 2pm on the beach in front of the Rhyl lifeboat station (LL18 3YP) on Saturday 12th December. This should take the form of the All-weather lifeboat tractor getting bogged down in the sand, and the Army have to recover it.
Martin Jones Coxswain at Rhyl Lifeboat station says ” We are more than willing to help out the community and especially 119 Company, as they have helped us in the past”
The public will be able to view the operation from the safety of the promenade.
