Buckingham Palace Garden Party
Teesmouth Lifeboat Coxswain John Race, his wife Susan and daughter Sarah have recently returned from London where they attended a garden party hosted by The Queen at Buckingham Palace. John was amongst a group of Long Serving volunteers from around the U.K. coast who were being recognised for their commitment to the RNLI.
The party were chaperoned by Mr. & Mrs. Vlasto before being individually introduced to the Duke of Kent. The wonderful occasion was enhanced by perfect weather conditions encouraging a stroll around Buckingham Palace gardens before stopping off at the marquees for refreshments.
Various drinks were served in proper cups and saucers with miniature cakes being in plentiful supply for those who indulged themselves.
All in all I can honestly say the family had a fabulous time and one that will remain in the memory for eternity.

Neil Marson Operations Manager at Teesmouth said that over the years John had played an active role, and had been a first class crew member, but due to his work now taking him out of the area, he had decided to stand down.

Expert Mariners tour RNLI Station
Lifesavers at sea welcomed special guests to their lifeboat station at Teesmouth. The guests visiting were from the Nautical Institute, the International professional body for qualified mariners. Captain Robbie Middleton, recently retired president of the Institute and Captain Sunil Perera, training manager, visited the Teesmouth Lifeboat Station while on business in Teesside.

During their visit to the station they were given a tour of the new facilities recently opened by Lord Crathorne, which provides support needed for a modern All Weather Lifeboat Station.

Neil Marson, Teesmouth Lifeboat Operations Manager, said: "I am delighted to welcome the Nautical Institute to the station, which gave an opportunity to demonstrate the level of commitment the RNLI has to the local maritime and coastal community".
