End of an era for Filey lifeboat
April 29, 2021
Local residents turned out at 5am to wave off the life-saving boat, the RNLB Keep Fit Association, on its final voyage from Filey. The boat has served Filey since a new lifeboat station was built to house it in 1991. The town has had a lifeboat station since 1804.
The Mersey class lifeboat's last voyage from Filey was to Lowestoft in Suffolk, where it arrived on Thursday evening. The lifeboat was then to be taken by road to Poole in Dorset, where the RNLI is based.
