A proud day for everyone associated with Eastbourne lifeboats. Bathed in glorious sunshine the crew welcomed their Royal Highnesses the Earl and Countess of Wessex to the official naming ceremony and service of dedication of our new lifeboat Diamond Jubilee. The Royal Couple appeared to enjoy the occasion as much as we did and chatted informally to members of the crew and also took the opportunity of a guided tour around the new state-of-the art Tamar class lifeboat.
