EXMOUTH'S new lifeboat station shop opened its doors to the public for the first time last Friday.

Shop staff and volunteers have been hard at work putting up shelves and filling them with fund-raising stock.

The new shop, near the Maer, also has a lift to enable disabled customers to travel to the upstairs viewing area where they can look down on the all-weather lifeboat.

Shop volunteer Margaret Eaglesham said: "It's so wonderful and so clean and so light.
