As I have had to postpone my visits for this spring and summer, I did just want to record how much I appreciate the difficulties you all face over the next few weeks and months.
Many of you will have found ways to adapt your skills, which are so important to the organisations you either work or volunteer for, to help in your own isolation or to help others cope better in those many jobs that cannot stop.
I was planning another charities forum this summer to underline the value of understanding each others strengths and achievements as well as the added value of working better together. The next forum will be especially interesting, with many important lessons to be shared.
I look forward to hearing from you and catching up as soon as possible. Thank you for all you do, wherever you are.

World Rowing Championships
Exmouth Coastwatch member and Gig racer, Keith Cornish, recently took part in the World Rowing Virtual Indoor Sprint Championships. The race was a 'sprint' of 1000 metres using an indoor rower, with Keith 2nd in GBR (5th with unverified times included) and 17th in the World with 'verified times' included. Well done Keith on the award of your certificate.
Exmouth NCI watchkeepers were invited along to Ladram Bay to witness Exmouth Coastguard Rescue Team undertaking their their Revalidation cliff rescue. A valuable training experience that gave our watchkeepers an insight into the operational requirements of the CRT. Thank you to Sam Houston who made us very welcome. Working together with our HM Coastguard colleagues.
