Long Description:
Dedicated to the RNLI this plaque is located on a sculpture of a lifeboat man dressed in 19th century oilskins and cork lifejacket. It was sculpted by Andrew Fitchett and stands in a pebble, shingle and sand beach. There are some trees in the corner symbolising a mother and her children watching for the safe return of the lifeboat. There is a small lifeboat hut with a model of a boat and an upturned boat on the beach. The RNLI flag flies high.

The plaque reads:
'Dedicated to the memory of volunteer
lifeboat crew members who have given their
lives in the quest to save others from the
perils of the sea.

"With courage anything is possible"
Dedicated 17th September 2003'
