|Schoolgirl stays safe at sea|
|Tuesday, 30 October 2012 00:00|
Seven year old Charlotte Grundy has furthered her ambition of becoming a volunteer lifeboat crew-member when she grew up, by winning a Stay Safe by the Sea children’s competition staged by the newly-opened Cowes RNLI lifeboat station.
The competition, run at the station during the summer months, attracted many entries. Charlotte’s was selected at random from those that were correct.
A pupil of Cowes Primary School, Charlotte returned to the station with her father to receive an RNLI ‘goody bag’, and a tour of the station’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Sheena Louise, by crew member Patrick Moreton. She told him she had became aware of sea safety by going on a sailing holiday and hearing a sea safety talk at her school by Cowes station’s education officer, Steve Price.
