Fleetwood Watchkeeper Appointed National Trustee

imageMike Byrne, one of Fleetwood’s watchkeepers, has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the National Coastwatch Institution at their AGM in London in April. This is a great honour for Mike personally, and all of the volunteers at Fleetwood take pleasure in knowing that his appointment will serve to raise awareness nationally of our position as the only station in the north west of England. Mike, a regular sea-farer and day-fisher, said “I am always conscious of the power of the seas, and it is very comforting to know that the Search and Rescue teams have your back in case you run into difficulties.” Of his appointment to the Board of Trustees, Mike said ” I am very honoured to be part of a team that looks out for people and shipping in our area, and I am also looking forward to helping develop and grow NCI nationally.”
