This is Colin. He's our Lifeboat Visits Officer. It is his responsibility to co-ordinate visits by organisations (mostly schools) and make sure that someone is there trained and ready to tell them all about the RNLI and what we do. And he has a busy time of it. I'll have to ask him but I think we probably get a couple of such visits each week and quite possibly more in the height of the summer term when so many schools come to Swanage for their Annual residential trip. Since he has started as our LVO Colin has revolutionised how we do it. With Dave's assistance he has created an in-house multimedia show which demonstrates in great detail what we do.

This is not a service we charge for, however, donations are welcome (and are usually forthcoming) and Colin has a small shop stocked up with little gifts for the young people to buy. If you're reading this and wish to arrange a visit for a school party, please contact Colin via the 'visits' section of our website.

Please don't forget to vote for Lifeboat Scrapbook in the Dorset Muesli Little Blog Awards. We were leading but now seem to have been knocked off our perch!
