Tamar lifeboat painting presented to Angle RNLI

Angle lifeboat station has been presented with a painting of its new Tamar class all-weather lifeboat, Mark Mason.

The presentation was made on Wednesday (19 August) to Angle's Lifeboat Operations Manager, John Allen-Mirehouse, by Mr George Parker, Proprietor of Llanelli's Parker Plant, suppliers of plant and equipment to Dean & Dyball Civil Engineering during the reconstruction of the lifeboat station to house the new Tamar.

The painting was commissioned by Mr Parker from Naomi Tydeman, a self-taught, award-winning water colourist based in Tenby. She completed a similar commission for
Tenby lifeboat station, also constructed by Dean & Dyball.

The team is now looking forward to being involved with the construction, in the not too distant future, of new lifeboat stations at St Davids and Mumbles, which have also been allocated new Tamar class lifeboats.
