Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station volunteer official awarded for long service

Ken Bolton, Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station treasurer has been awarded for his long service and his valuable support to the RNLI.

Ken has been presented with a miniature statuette and framed certificate in recognition of over 10 years service to the charity.

RNLI Operations Director Michael Vlasto OBE recently awarded Ken, a retired mechanical engineer, with the detailed pewter model of a lifeboatman at the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station.

Mr Vlasto was visiting the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station to unveil two bronze panels outside the Moelfre Sea watch centre to commemorate the anniversary of the tragic loss of 479 lives when the Royal Charter was wrecked on the Moelfre rocks 150 years ago.

The detailed statuette of a lifeboatman is awarded to RNLI station officials once they have completed ten years of service to the charity and is manufactured by A E Williams of Birmingham, the countries oldest pewter making company.

Moelfre RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager Rod Pace said "On behalf of everyone at the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station I would like to thank Ken for all his dedication, commitment and hard work he has given to the RNLI over the past 13 years. He is a valuable member of the team and he thoroughly deserves this award."
