Royal recognition as lifeboat crew given medals for long service
JUBILEE medals were handed to lifeboat crew members at the town's RNLI annual carol service. The service was held in the Salvation Army Citadel and medals were presented to 17 volunteer crew by Ken Lacey, president of the Weston branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
In recognition of the Queen's diamond jubilee, the RNLI has been awarding medals to those members of operational teams who have served at least five years on their stations.
Music was provided by the local Salvation Army players, led by band master Harry Dryden, plus other instrumentalists who came from as far afield as Tavistock, Taunton, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean as well as Bristol and Clevedon.
One member of the orchestra even came from Australia – due to the fact he was visiting his father in the UK.
