    The ALB and her volunteer crew launched into rough seas with wind > Force 7 but unfortunately the anchor from the broken down vessel did not hold and she was washed onto the beach before the lifeboat got on scene. Hastings Coastguardard team assisted the crewman ashore safely however due to the conditions the boat was not able to be towed off the beach.
    ALB returned to station

    Massive Congratulations to volunteer Arthur Miles who has been awarded a bronze medal by the RNLI for his dedication to Hastings lifeboat station.

    Arthur joined the RNLI in 2002 and since then has undertaken the roles of chairman, vice chairman, assistant treasurer, shop volunteer and steward.
    He continues in the roles of vice chairman, assistant treasurer and shop volunteer.

    Arthur said: “I am proud to be part of the team at Hastings Lifeboat.”

    Arthur was among 40 volunteers in London and the South East who have dedicated their time to raise funds to help save lives at sea and on the River Thames.

    The awards celebrated the hard work and achievements of volunteers in all areas of the charity’s work, including community fund raising, lifesaving, education, events and retail.

    Awards were presented by Charles Hunter-Pease, Chairman of the RNLI, who said: ‘This ceremony has been a celebration of the difference that the dedicated and committed volunteers have all made to the lives of others.

    “At our lifeboat stations here in the South East and London, our volunteer crews rescued more than 1,500 people in 2014. This adds up to an extraordinary achievement for our lifesavers – and a life-changing moment for every single person they brought to safety

    A massive well done to Pete one of our crew who was passed out as an ALB Navigator this afternoon.
    Pete who has been working hard to reach the high standard required to pass was tested by one of our RNLI assessors on several aspects of navigation including basic chart work and symbols, course to steer, passage planning, tides and tidal curves and much more.
    Pete has been on the crew since 2010 and last year was also passed out as an ILB Helmsman. Well done Pete :)

    A massive congratulations to RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station volunteer Jean Reed who received a Gold Badge from the RNLI yesterday!
    Jean and fellow volunteers from Hastings travelled to the Barbican in London to to see Jean accept the badge in recognition of her years volunteering for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

    Jean joined the Ladies Lifeboat Guild in 1976 and served on the committee when it was formed into a society. Over the years Jean has been Vice Chairman, Chairman and also received R.N.L.I. Bronze and Silver badges. In 2001 Jean went to Buckingham palace for a Royal Garden party with fellow volunteer Joyce Mepham and met the Duke of Kent.
    Jean still volunteers tirelessly in the shop at Hastings and her efforts are really appreciated!

    Well done Jean, from all at Hastings :)

    Both of Hastings Lifeboats on Service last night to assist lone yachtsman in difficulty!

    Our volunteer crew responded to their pagers at 21:18 last night after Dover CG received reports of a yacht possibly in difficulty close to shore off Hastings.
    The ILB launched first to assist and located the yacht which had run aground. After putting a crew member on board to help out, once all was well the ALB escorted the vessel to Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne. ALB returned 00:45

    Hastings Coastguard also assisting from the shore

    Crew and Launchers gathered at the Dolphin Inn last night to wish our Lifeboat Medical Advisor Dr Sally Paget a very happy retirement!
    Sally who previously worked at Roebuck Surgery in Hastings Old Town has been our LMA for over 15 years and part of her role was to carry out crew medicals and assist on our Casualty Care Courses. Our Lifeboat Operations Manager Peter Adams presented Sally with a picture of our lifeboat signed by all the crew.
    Dr Linda Parker, also from Roebuck Surgery has now taken up the role and we would like to welcome Linda to the team and say a massive thank you to Sally!

    Thanks also go to Mark from The Dolphin for the food and hospitality.

    When reports came in that someone had been hit by falling rocks at Fairlight, the team were assembled then were joined by SECAmb HART and local ambulance crews along with the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 104 to help locate and evacuate the casualty.
    Great job everyone!

    1946 hrs shout: team to respond to report of person hit by falling rocks at Fairlight, once on scene we were met by CFR, HART & ambulance crew. The casualty was stabilised and we decided the best option was for Rescue 104 (CG Helicopter) to assist with casualty extraction. The team are now back at station.

    Hastings ILB was requested to launch by Dover Coastguard at 14:29 today after they received reports of an object in the water 1/2 a mile SE of Pier.
    The ILB and her volunteer crew were quickly on scene and after a short search they located a fishermans marker which was confirmed as the object by Hastings Coastguard.
    The ILB was then diverted to another object in the water off of The Azur. Following a longer search and with only fisherman's marks found once again the ILB was stood down.
