A Morecambe volunteer has been commended for his 20 year service to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Helmsman Steve Wilson received recognition for his 20 years of service on Morecambe’s RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew when he was presented with a long service award and letter of thanks by Kevin Jackson, Morecambe’s Lifeboat Operations Manager.

In making the presentation, on Wednesday Novemvber 4, Kevin said that Steve’s award is “deserved recognition for the dedication and commitment that he has given to the volunteer lifeboat service for many years.”

In response, Steve thanked Kevin for presenting the award and reminded his fellow crew members that “you get out of it what you put in, you should always be learning and the more you learn, the more competent you become.”

Morecambe RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew is currently seeking to recruit new members and anyone aged between 17 and 40 years old (living or working within 10 minutes of Morecambe lifeboat station) who is perhaps interested in joining them, is asked to contact Morecambe’s Lifeboat Operations Manager, Kevin Jackson, at kevinajackson@btinternet.com.
