Tenby RNLI recently held an awards afternoon to recognise achievments by some of the town’s rescue crew.

Hosted by Tenby Sailing Club, over the course of the afternoon, several awards were presented, including 20 years service medals for Louie Beynon and Robert James.

The annual Lifeboat Operations Manager (LOM) award was presented by Phil Rees to the families of the crew in recognition of their support over the year.

Letters of thanks from the RNLI’s Director of Lifesaving Operations went to Robert James (Helm), Peter O’Hagan and Rhys Thomas for a rescue in difficult conditions at St govans in 2018, where, whilst crewing the inshore lifeboat, they managed to get an injured casualty off the rocks with assistance from the Coastguard Cliff Rescue Team.

Coxswain of the all-weather lifeboat that day, Daniel Young also received thanks for his part in manoeuvring the lifeboat so that the casualty could be lifted into the helicopter.

The awards afternoon was a great way to round off another very busy year for Tenby’s Lifeboat crew.
