Our Group’s 2021/2022 Annual General Meeting was held on Sunday, 24 October 2021 with a good attendance of Life Members, Volunteers and social members. It's been a very busy year for our Group, and, with all the developments in the pipeline, we've got another very busy year ahead! Our brand-new Rescue 2 vessel is due to be delivered next month (a bit behind schedule), our new Jetty adjacent to our building will be getting underway in the next few months and we will also be getting a new Rescue 1 vessel to replace 'Crikey' next year - it's all go! There has never been a better time to think about joining our wonderful team of volunteers!
