Saturday 19/9/15 Naming Ceremony and Service of Dedication for Lifeboat Jacob

September 19, 2015


Today Andy and I attended the Service of Dedication, conducted by the Bishop of Portsmouth The Right Reverend Christopher Foster, for Hayling Island’s newest Lifeboat, Jacob.

Bought with money generously bequeathed by Ivy Louisa Primrose Jacob in her estate after she died in 2011.

The D Class lifeboat, D-779 Jacob will be a very welcome addition to the lifeboats available to be launched from the Hayling Island Lifeboat Station.
