Political Support

Ben Lake, MP for Ceredigion, and Elin Jones, A.M for Ceredigion

paid New Quay Lifeboat Station a visit to discuss the concerns raised by the withdrawal of the All-Weather Lifeboat from here and to show their support for our campaign





Support also from Simon Thomas AM for Mid and West Wales

Mid and West Wales Assembly Member Joyce Watson

“I support local campaigners who are concerned about the proposal to withdraw all-weather support between Barmouth and fishguard. The RNLI does a terrific job under difficult circumstances, but weather can change quickly in Cardigan Bay, and forward planning should account for the possibility of extreme weather conditions. I have asked the RNLI to confirm how long they would expect it would take for a rescue from Barmouth or Fishguard in these circumstances. There are huge concerns locally about the potential impact these changes will have on anyone needing an all-waether boat in severe conditions if the changes are implemented.”
