146 Years of Port Isaac RNLI

Monday, July 29, 2013

Port Isaac RNLI recently celebrated 146 years of lifeboat service in the village, an anniversary that was marked by a day of recognition and revelry.

Two awards were presented to Kevin Dingle who lately retired from the RNLI after 20 years of service. A framed certificate was presented to him and former crew member John Collins, while Mr Dingle also received an RNLI Shield of Thanks.

Guest of honour Commodore Jamie Millar CBE, the Royal Navy’s Regional Commander of England and Wales, was on hand to present three bravery awards. Crew members Nicki Bradbury and Matt Main were awarded the bronze medal for gallantry, while helmsman Damien Bolton was awarded the silver medal.

The awards were in recognition for the part they played in a dramatic rescue in April 2012 when a father and son were dragged into turbulent waters between Tintagel and Port Isaac. It is the first time the silver medal for gallant rescue work has been awarded in Port Isaac since 1870.

St Minver Band and Port Isaac Chorale provided the entertainment on the day, while £700 was raised for the RNLI charity. As always we thank the brave volunteers of the Port Isaac RNLI who put their own lives at risk to help others who have fallen into trouble.
