Our life-saving at sea charity is 190 years old today!
Happy birthday to the RNLI from all your volunteers at Exmouth lifeboat station, including the dedicated shop and fundraising teams. Also our RNLI Lifeguards based only 75 metres away from us in the summer months.
Of course there has been a lifeboat in Exmouth since 1803 and it was only on 4 March 1824 that Sir William Hillary's plea to help those in peril on the sea was answered.
We've come a long way since then and we're proud of our lifesaving history.
Here's a link to our innovations over the last 190 years and there's much more to come.... http://bit.ly/1q04Qub
