    Martin ColemanFabulous photos. I watched the lifeboat from the car park at Rock-a-Nore but unfortunately left before the rainbow appeared. God bless the RNLI, a cause I will always give to.

    Moira BellSpectacular, and RNLI ONE OF THE BEST VOLUNTEER SERVICES. always felt SO scared and pace FLOOR MANY a night when our daughter HAD shouts all hours in most horrific weather.... I admire their bravery, ok I am biased, but seriously the time, dedication, learning and the risk they take on and as volunteers is second to none as far as I am concerned....we are very proud if our daughter and the her colleagues past and present for giving their unconditional support....well done all volunteer services that really are risking life and limb.... 🚤🚤🚤 in God we trust and keep you safe...xx

    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 :)

    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.

    RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station shared Hastings Coastguard's post.

    Our Hastings Coastguard colleagues have had a busy few days (and nights) too!

    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.
    False Alarm with good intent

    It's been a busy week for the Hastings Lifeboats
    Our ILB was requested to launch by Dover CG at 21:47 last night after receiving a call from a walker who reported his friends cut off by the tide under the cliffs.
    The ILB and her volunteer crew were quickly on scene and the casualties were located and recovered back to the Lifeboat Station.
    Working closely with Hastings Coastguard, the first informant and another friend were located safely near Rocklands and reunited with with the rest of the group

    Remember, always check the tide times before walking out of sight and under the cliffs!
