Dobbies 16 July 2017 – Thank you


Thank you to Carol, Steve and Tristan for collecting this Sunday at Dobbies.

I think it’s fair to say when you are competing with Lewis Hamilton, Roger Federer and Chris Froome you are going to struggle to win.

But, despite being a quiet Sunday we still managed to raise £225.70 so a big thank you to Carol, Steve and Tristan for coming out to help raise these funds. We’ve another date in September with Dobbies so if you could help out let us know!

On the plus side I think that Steve and Tristan enjoyed the fried breakfast, and the lunch wasn’t too shabby either.

RNLI Hovercraft tasked to assist in dog rescue and also a Kite Surfer – 15 July 2017


At 7.30pm UK Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton Hovercraft to investigate a report of a dog stuck in the mud at Snettisham beach.

Hunstanton Hovercraft launched on service and proceeded to Snettisham.   Before they reached the area UK Coastguard radioed that the dog had been rescued and they could return to station.  On the way back the Coastguard radioed a report of a kite surfer in trouble off Old Hunstanton.  The crew spotted a kite surfer on the beach opposite the Lighthouse waving his arms.  He confirmed that he had been in trouble and his kite was blowing out to sea.  Our hovercraft took him on board and went on to recover his kite.  They landed him and his kite on the beach at Old Hunstanton where he was met by the local Coastguard response team.  No medical treatment was required

H.W. 11.38pm.   Wind SW 4   Weather Sunny/Cloudy.   Vis. Good   Sea state slight
