The Guild

Aldeburgh & District Lifeboat Guild

The 53rd AGM of the Guild took place in the Community Centre on Monday 30th March.  It was very well attended by over 70 people.  Charles Hunter-Pease, OBE, Chairman of the RNLI presented two awards – a Gold Badge to Felicity Richardson and a Silver Statuette to Andrew Harris.  They have both been associated with the Aldeburgh Lifeboats for over 25 years and the awards were in recognition of their dedication and commitment to the RNLI.

Congratulations to you both from the Crew and the Guild!

Our annual Street Fair was once again a great success.  It was a lovely day and it was well patronised.

All the usual stalls were there and we raised the impressive sum of £3,535 in aid of the Aldeburgh Lifeboats.

Many thanks to all you helped us at this popular event.
