Trips on Lucy Lavers

Following her return from Dunkirk, Lucy Lavers now lives in the working fishing port of Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk,

where she served twice as the town's relief lifeboat. She gives pre-booked trips afloat from Easter to October (weather permitting) to the public, schools and other groups, acting as a floating ambassador to help people understand and experience our maritime heritage. 

On land her story will continue to be told through films, photographs and displays at Rescue Wooden Boats Maritime Heritage Centre in Stiffkey, Norfolk, and here on the website.
