Cleethorpes lifeboat station was established in 1868 and operates an inshore lifeboat.
Cleethorpes Life Boat Station is funded by people who watch Blue Peter!
It’s one of seven stations operating a lifeboat funded by viewers of the BBC television programme and the lifeboat crews have been presented with 10 awards for gallantry in the last decade!
As a registered charity, Cleethorpes Life Boat Station offers a 24 hour on call search and rescue service up to fifty miles from the coast line.
Imagine that in the early days! They had wooden life boats then and needed at least 20 crew to man it and residents to launch it! Now it takes just four crew and is launched by a soft track machine.
These brave men and women go out on search and rescue missions about 50 times in a year.
This station is an Observe station. Observe stations welcome visitors but many are in inaccessible places and best suited to maritime rescue rather than visits. However, they are situated in stunning locations so why not enjoy the local area, using the station as a starting point?
In August 2012 The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust funded the training of two new volunteers at Cleethorpes RNLI lifeboat station and the staff of Grimsby’s Marks and Spencer store raised over £1600 for them too!
