Join the RNLI and stay in their HQ
The RNLI are turning their flash new HQ in Poole into an hotel for the summer. Anyone who is linked to the lifeboat, be they crewman, volunteer or family member can stay at the waterside edifice while there is no training taking place.
However their standard B&B rates are actually higher than the local Premier Inn!
‘Remember every £1 you spend at The Lifeboat College helps the RNLI to save lives at sea,’my wife’s latest copy of The Lifeboat tells me. Hey come on guys – and also to pay for the PR team who write the blurb! Poor old Grace Darling never had a media representative!
