West Wight Cottages supports Freshwater Independent Lifeboat
West Wight Cottages supports Freshwater Independent Lifeboat as a lifetime member. Our Isle of Wight holiday cottages (2 The Granary holiday cottage in Brighstone and Brookside Cottage in Shorwell) have each dedicated a “brick” and our plaques can be seen in the boathouse. Look out for their Open Days on 12th July (official naming of the new inshore lifeboat – and start of Currys 6 day walk around the island with a washing machine!) and 30th August (visit from the Border Service vessel “Searcher” and a police boat).
The team need your help in their bid to get £25,000 from the Aviva Community Fund. The money is needed to replace the groynes either side of the slipway so that the lifeboats can be launched at low tide. Voting is only open until 30th May so do it now https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/Project/View/256!
