Lucy Lavers Homecoming

Lucy Lavers' Homecoming was celebrated on Wells Quay on Friday 5th June and then at Wells Sailing Club. Lucy Lavers was escorted home by former Wells lifeboat Ernest Tom Neathercoat, restored in 2012 by David Hewitt, by the current Wells inshore lifeboat Jane Ann III, and by crab boats Miss Judith and Miss Britain. Aboard were David Cox, her Wells coxswain in the sixties, Allen Frary, the current Wells Coxswain and Ben Riches, who with the Hewitts and others, did a lot of her restoration work.
