The Chairman of the St Mary’s lifeboat says he hopes the community is as proud of his crew as he is.

Chris Thomas was speaking after the volunteers responded to three shouts over the past four days. He says they have performed “magnificently in very trying conditions,” saving three lives on Tuesday night.

Chris highlights an excellent response to call outs. He says the crew do not hesitate to turn out to go to the assistance of those in distress regardless of the sea conditions.

And Chris says he’s pleased that there are enthusiastic new, younger members coming on board.

Dan Moulson and Joe Thomas went on their first shout on Saturday.
