On the 8th May we held a charity 5 a side football knockout competition at Staples Vegetables near Boston, Lincolnshire.
We had 8 teams take part including a fire brigade and Coastguard teams. During the day we had a free BBQ for all to enjoy. We also had a tombola and donation buckets being passed around.
We are very proud to announce that we raised £540 for both The Coastguard Association and LIVES first responders!
We will be getting the cheques out as soon as possible!
The 42nd Annual General Meeting of the Coastguard Association took place at 10:00 on Saturday 24th March at the Muckleburgh Military Collection Museum, Weybourne Camp, Weybourne Road, Holt, Norfolk NR25 7EH.
We will post the 2018 minutes shortly but meanwhile, congratulations to the Sherringham Branch of the CGA for being nominated the Chairman’s Branch of the Year!

The NMOC Football Team looking resplendent in the CGA Football Kit!
We have now entered into the English Football Associations Peoples Cup and have our first qualifying match on Sunday 26th February where we will be wearing the Kit and promoting the Coastguard Association. We are also looking at entering the Civil Service Sports Club Games 2017 based up at Loughbrough University to again represent both HM Coastguard and the Coastguard Association.
I have attached a picture of us all after the football match against HQ (beat them 5-1!) looking very jubilant. Kind Regards and Many Thanks – Daniel Winter
The 2017 contingent for Remembrance Sunday seem happy that the standing and parading is finally over, and didn’t they do the service proud!
So much really good operational, prevention and fundraising work is done around the coast and then captured on Smartphones or cameras. If you have a great photo with a Coastguard theme why don’t you share with us at
Who knows, it might become our photo of the month! Remember though, every penny helps and we do thank you for all your efforts….
All across the country men, women, boys & girls from all walks of life paraded together in memory of those that gave their lives that we may have Peace, Freedom & Justice.
We will remember them….
