RESEARCHERS are needed to help Shoreham lifeboat station celebrate its 150th anniversary.

The charity known for rescuing people is now putting out its own call for help.

The RNLI is looking for anyone interested in history, research and writing to help put together a book to mark the occasion.

The book will cover the last 150 years of the station from its beginnings, the war years and its memorable services, right up to 2015 and the anniversary events.

Keith Phelps, Shoreham lifeboat operations manager, said: “We are slowly progressing with the book but there is still plenty to do and we could really do with some help. It will be a momentous year for the lifeboat station as it celebrates its 150th anniversary and a book depicting its history would be a fitting tribute.”

Volunteers with time to carry out research, collate information and write some sections of the book should contact Mr Phelps on 07973 561608.
