Wendy Austin, the volunteer shop manager said: ‘Working in the RNLI boathouse for me is a privilege. It’s such a bonus to be able to do something worthwhile, in such close contact with the sea and the shore. I find it wonderful to have three hours where I can sit and read, knit & chat between serving our wonderful customers.
The shop is open in all weathers, some days busier than others but it’s surprising how many visitors you can get on a rainy day. I find it such a restorative place and always feel better after a shift in the shop.’
