There was a full house at Fleetwood Nautical College on the 27th July when members of Fleetwood Coastwatch bid farewell to Steve Martin, who is standing down as Station Manager after 8 years at the helm. During his time in charge Steve played a pivotal role in ensuring the successful move from the old, draughty lookout station to the new state-of-the-art premises at Fleetwood tower.
On being presented with a framed selection of photos by Bob Loynes, the new Station Manager, Steve expressed his appreciation for all of the effort and loyalty shown by the membership over the years. He said that it was impossible to thank everyone enough and that none of our success could have been achieved without a huge amount of help and enthusiasm from all of the members.
He wished all of the watchkeepers the very best for the future, and offered his congratulations and good wishes to Bob as he takes up the position of Manager.
