PR310517 Badgers at Exmouth lifeboat station on 30 May
On 30 May, 32 St John Ambulance Badgers from all over the West Country visited Exmouth lifeboat station as part of an activities week to celebrate 30 years of their first-aid charity.
The 32 seven to 10 year olds with 20 adult helpers (and a human-sized Bertie the Badger) based their week at Bristol Schools Camp at Orcombe Point. One of the planned adventures was a visit to see both Shannon class lifeboat R and J Welburn and D class lifeboat George Bearman II and to hear about the work of Crew volunteers.
Exmouth Lifeboat Visits Officer, Bill Lodge said:
‘The Badgers were divided into four groups of eight and took turns to see the lifeboats and learn important coastal safety messages. We enjoyed hosting the young visitors who are learning to be the next generation lifesavers.’
