Members of the Lyme Regis and Charmouth RNLI Guild – the fundraising arm of the lifeboat charity – said a fond farewell to one of their long serving officials at a special party.

Carys Lowe has retired after 15 years as secretary of the guild, and the event was marked at a presentation evening at the Hunters Lodge, Raymonds Hill, Axminster .

Carys, an art lover, was presented with membership of the National Gallery by guild chairman Irene Roper.

A letter to Carys from Angela Rook, business services and support director of the RNLI, said her commitment to the charity “has been greatly valued and admired by all.”

Irene Roper also praised the work of Janet Clayton who has retired as membership secretary after nine years.
