A week of demolition

On Sunday 1st February 2015 we launched both our lifeboats for the final time from the old boathouse. We then handed it over to BAM Nuttal the RNLI's contractors and the process of demolition and rebuild began.

That's the first week done. The all weather lifeboat has been rocking and rolling on the mooring in the NE wind. The Angling club has gone as has the ILB shed. The crew room has gone and some rather large cracks were discovered in the Eastern wall. We've had our first exercise from our temporary facilities which went well. Only about another 59 weeks to go!
