Next Sunday at 3pm the Hilda Jarrett will be slip launched from the Baltimore Lifeboat station for the last time. Hilda Jarrett served our community well and she is much loved by those who crewed on her and by those who were given assistance in difficult circumstances.
She will be put on her moorings in the harbour until Tuesday when she will commence passage to Conwy in Wales, where she will be prepared to enter the RNLI relief fleet.
In future the new Tamar class all weather lifeboat Alan Massey will be kept on a berth next to the station house and once refurbishments are complete the inshore lifeboat Bessie will be housed within the station for slip launch. As there are two significant construction projects underway adjacent to the station, it is advised to avoid Bullpoint and view the launch from Church Strand.
