A former treasurer and shore crew member with the RNLI in Lyme Regis has returned as chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group.
Mark Houghton, 57, has just begun a four year stint to co-ordinate the activities of the lifeboat operational team, the fund-raising guild and the RNLI’s beach lifeguards.
Mark, who lives near Bridport and takes over from John Dover, who performed the role for 18 months, said: ”Another important part of my activities will be as a point of contact for other local organisations or individuals regarding all aspects of the RNLI in the area.
“This could involve discussing co-operation with other local services, local authorities, or individuals who want to volunteer with the RNLI or simply have concerns to raise.”
* The RNLI operates over 230 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and has more than 100 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK.
