The Sheringham Lifeboat was paged by Humber Coastguard at 14.56 hrs on Monday 5th August 2013 when the local Sheringham police had seen what was thought to be two swimmers in trouble approximately 200 metres off Sheringham central beach.
As the Lifeboat was being launched at approx 15.02 hrs the Coastguard were informed that the swimmers had self-recovered and the Lifeboat was stood down.
We regret to advise our friends, followers and supporters that until further notice Sheringham Lifeboat Station and both shops will be closed to visitors as will all the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeboat stations, shops, museums and visitor centres. Besides protecting the wellbeing of our volunteers, our staff and our visitors this will enable us to preserve and continue with our lifesaving service. In addition, we will be cancelling all indoor and outdoor RNLI fundraising and other events including visits to schools. We will keep you informed via our website and social media accounts of any developments and will also provide updates on any lifesaving launches.
Your support for the RNLI is much appreciated and we hope that you will understand why we have made these difficult decisions.
