The shop at the boathouse
The shop at the boathouse is manned by volunteers between 11am and 4pm on weekends and bank holidays during the Winter (October to May, weather permitting), and every day in the Summer months (May to September – also weather permitting) between the hours of 11am and 4pm. The shop sells a varied selection of R.N.L.I. souvenirs and the volunteers will be more than willing to assist if you wish to browse the official R.N.L.I. catalogues.
Mrs. Jean Frost MBE was the boathouse souvenirs manager until she stepped down due to health and age on 1/1/2021.
The branch is in the process of beginning the recruitment stage to find a new manager.
The boathouse shop number is 01745 350956, but will only be answered during shop opening hours.

The branch is looking for volunteers to help in the shop on a volunteer basis, either for whole days in the Summer, or a few hours in the days or at weekends. These posts would involve cash and credit/debit card transactions, and training will be given. The posts would ideally suit a retired person, who is willing to give a few hours a week to help fund the Lifeboats.
