Exmouth RNLI is on the lookout for more on volunteer tour guides to come forward.

The lifesaving charity is currently recruiting for additional guides to join a small team of dedicated volunteers providing free tours for the public.

Tours of the state-of-the-art lifeboat station in Queen’s Drive take place at weekends throughout the year.

Lifeboat visits officer Bill Lodge would now like to hear from members of the community who would like to become involved, adding: “Over the past two years we have had an increasing demand from the public to visit our station and see the Shannon-class lifeboat R and J Welburn, and the D class inshore lifeboat George Bearman II.

“We are now seeking additional guides to ensure we can cover the demand and to provide weekday coverage through the school holidays in the future.”

For more details email Visitors can ask about further volunteering opportunities at the station.
