The Ceredigion Lifeboat Campaign (CLC) was formed on July 4th 2017 in response to the RNLI’s decision. Although the New Quay Lifeboat Crew was ready and willing to challenge the decision from the outset, it was considered important that they should remain focused on their primary task – to be in a constant state of readiness to save lives at sea.
The community-driven CLC action group is made up of representatives of local fishermen, boat trip operators, yacht clubs, rowing clubs, long-time fundraisers, and other committed supporters of New Quay Lifeboat Station. There are also crew members in the group, independently supporting the campaign in their own right.
All the action group members have constantly stated their unswerving loyalty and commitment to the high values and principles of the RNLI. The issue is purely with the decision, which has been poorly arrived at and appallingly delivered.
Some of our Supporters
From the outset, the campaign has enjoyed the support and energy of members of the seafaring and coastal communities in the region and from further afield. Many people are angered both by the ill-considered decision itself and by the RNLI’s refusal to justify the way in which it had been reached.
The campaign enjoys rock solid support from local businesses and individuals. Fund-raising events for the campaign run throughout the year.
