Cobb harbour HQ is now a more intertesting visitor attraction with photos and models of historic boats
The RNLI’s lifeboat station in Lyme Regis is undergoing a makeover to make it a more interesting attraction for visitors.
Facts and figures, photos of the crew and historic detail are all part of the project led by the RNLI’s Visitor Experience Manager Amanda Woods with input from Lifeboat Operations Manager Nick Marks and volunteer press officer Richard Horobin.
Part of the exterior of the lifeboat station has been re-decorated in ‘RNLI blue’ with new identity boards, including invitations to visit the boathouse. Inside, visitors will find plenty of detail about the role of the life-saving charity and models of historic boats.
Amanda Woods said: “The RNLI values its supporters and appreciates that they are interested in the work of its volunteers. Lyme Regis welcomes many thousands of visitors every year, so we wanted to improve our presence in the town by making a visit to the lifeboat station a more rewarding experience.”

Nick Marks said: “The timing of these improvements to the overall look of our lifeboat station could not be better with summer and, of course, Lifeboat Week not far away.”
