The Norfolk & Suffolk Boating Association is to promote and support the Hemsby Lifeboat.
The widely reported major impact of coastal erosion over the past 18 months on the independent Hemsby Lifeboat Station and the operation of its two lifeboats, including its dedicated Lifeboat for the Broads, is a serious cause of concern as regards the safety not only of holidaymakers and the public generally but especially to those who enjoy boating on the Broads.
This has resulted in the matter being raised at a meeting of The Norfolk & Suffolk Boating Association management committee. At the meeting it was agreed that the NSBA would launch an initiative to promote and support the Hemsby Independent Lifeboat Station and help to ensure it continues to be able to operate its two lifeboats including, of course, its Lifeboat for The Broads. Details will be announced in the spring.
