We thank Tom for his excellent presentation and despite the icy cold weather we had a fairly good attendance. It was good to see the results of the Refurbishment the station headquarters has undergone these last few months – all credit to all concerned. It is a fine old building with a great history of brilliant volunteers.

Thank you also for the invitation to visit the station one evening during the year – we shall look forward to fixing a date once the lighter evenings are here.

One thought on “Tom Fennelly “150 years of Volunteer Life Brigade”

  1. Hello,
    Do you happen to know if there was a Volunteer Life Brigade at Cresswell? I can’t find any reference to one, but there is a post in the field south of the old Coastguard Station, like a telegraph pole, with footholds up it, and a stone some distance off which might have been the place you stood to practise throwing a rope
