Aldeburgh Lifeboat Station’s All Weather Lifeboat, the Freddie Cooper, is heading down to Poole for a refit.  Some of the crew went down to Ramsgate, earlier in the week, as the station will have a relief lifeboat, another Mersey called Margaret Jean. The crew brought the relief boat to Aldeburgh from Ramsgate on Tuesday 11th October, arriving at the beach at approximately 1pm.  Crew then sailed the Freddie Cooper down to Levington Marina on Thursday 13th October, where she was lifted out and then driven down to Poole by road.  The refit is expected to take about 2 months.
