The Coastguard Association were delighted and overwhelmed with the donation that they received care of the five Coastguard rescue teams on Anglesey for £7,000.
Janice Bannister’s dog, Sylvia went missing from Newborough Beach January 17th, her story touched dog lovers around the Globe as her devoted owner desperately searched the remote parts of Anglesey, and HM Coastguard Angelsey helped in the search. Sadly Sylvia was found a week later,on 24 January, on a sun drenched beach, cut off by rising tides, Sylvia had drowned.
Sylvia left a legacy – the “From Sylvia with Love ” fund. The Coastguard Association are honored to accept this in memory of Sylvie and will put it to great use.
Details of the donation was covered here on the BBC news web site.
2016/17 saw many changes in UK Search & Rescue, from the closing of bases & stations, to the transfer of numerous responsibilities to the National Maritime Operations Centre (NMOC), including those of the Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre (ARCC).
2018 has seen those changes continue, with the addition of the Satellite Mission Control hub to the NMOC and with many changes to Coastguard Rescue Service equipment and protocols.
2019 saw an Alerting upgrade from pagers to SmartPhones for many Coastguard Rescue Officers together with a Coast Rescue Service review.
2020 promises just as many changes, with numerous staff and organisational changes and a healthy organisational reflection on capability.
The Coastguard Association will never forget that new buildings, technology and machines are nothing without the men and women that operate them, either remaining in service today within what was termed ‘Future Coastguard’ or now watching from the sidelines having contributed so much over the years.
The Coastguard Association are delighted to welcome you to our website and hope that you can help us, help those who now have need of our support.
Join us today so we can help you tomorrow…
