Typical 'Bank Holiday' job

Well, the bank holiday is progressing with the usual mixture of 'run-of-the-mill' shouts. All trivial nonsense really, AA jobs if you like. Except they're not. For those people whom we help these sort of shouts make a huge difference. Put yourself in the position of the parents of the two girls who the ILB rescued today. You're there on the beach having a nice family day out. The kids go out for a paddle their dinghy. The next thing you you know they are being blown rapidly out to sea and you are unable to help. What next? Well, might I be so bold as to suggest that the arrival of the lifeboat may have come as something of a relief to the distraught parents?!

So, job done...two scared young people brought ashore and tow parents mightily's what we are here for.

What's next I wonder?

Incidentally, well done to Becky for getting on the shout today. As far as I am aware this was her first shout after a long lay-off due to injury. Good to have you back Haddock!
