RNLI volunteers receive special awards for dedicated service

Three volunteers have been given awards from the Lieutenant Governor for their dedication to the service.

Lesley Carter and Environment Minister Steve Luce both received 30-year-long service awards.

Vice Admiral Jerry Kyd also gave the King's Flag to Nigel Sweeny, the lifeboat operations manager, along with a framed certificate of the St Catherine's Lifeboat Station, for 50  years of service.

Jersey's RNLI celebrated its 200th anniversary with a garden party at Government House.

The Lieutenant Governor saw the work of the St Helier crew first-hand on Sunday when a vessel needed help at sea during the Governor's Cup Inter-Island Races.

The all-weather responded to calls for assistance and His Excellency had a 'warm chat' with the people on the seven-metre-long motor boat.
