New lifeboat station shore works begin

THOSE attending Blyth RNLI’s latest annual meeting last week were shown the start of the shore works for its new lifeboat house.

They were also given an update by operations manager John Scott about the lifeboat station’s activities, including the Jennie B being called out by coastguard 29 times last year.

The meeting also heard that the station had been given donations totalling £15,126 last year.
