We’re pleased to announce that 2012 has proved to be a quiet year so far. The Ferryside Lifeboat has not been called out on an emergency rescue yet but we’re conscious that as the weather improves, more and more people will be out on the water. As we look towards April we know that the chances of the lifeboat being called out increase dramatically. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that we have the weather and tide tables up on the website under our ‘useful links’ page so please use this if you’re out and about in the area. The tide can be notoriously quick coming in and out over the deceptive sands of the Carmarthen Bar. Please be safe and take every precaution before going out on or near the water.
We would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to the landlord and regulars of the Fountain in Meidrim who raised a substantial £195.11 from a Bingo night on February 17th. It was great coming out to meet you and we had a fantastic night. Hope to see you all again soon.
As a reminder to anybody who is interested in the work of the Ferryside Lifeboat, we conduct training sessions on Wednesday evenings and over the weekend. If anybody is interested in volunteering then come down to the lifeboat station or call the duty coxswain on the mobile number provided.
