Exmouth Cubs visit RNLI

Youngsters from Exmouth 3rd Cubs were given an insight into the work of Exmouth RNLI when the group was invited to the boathouse

A group of Exmouth cubs learned about the work of the RNLI when they visited the lifeboat station near Maer rocks.

The 3rd Exmouth Cubs met some of the RNLI volunteer crew, where the youngsters were invited to try on some of the kit and ask questions about the sea-safety service.

Roy Gibbs, spokesman for the Cub group, said: “They learnt all about the launching, servicing and hard work that goes into keeping the shores around Exmouth, and the surrounding area, safe.

The Cubs had a thoroughly enjoyable time, and had so many questions the evening over-ran by 25 minutes.

A couple got the chance to try on the all weather gear, and everyone got the chance to try on a helmet.

Thanks must go to the hard work put in by the volunteers who do such a fantastic job for the RNLI and provided such an interesting, educational evening.”
