National Coastwatch Day

Open day at National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) Exmouth a great success.
A fantastic turn out from both locals and visitors helped  make NCI’s open day a tremendous success.The day was hosted at Coastwatch House on Queen’s Drive adjacent to the lookout. The purpose of the day was to show and inform the public about the work carried out by the volunteers. Members of the public were invited to look through the optics used in the  lookout and hear radio communications from traffic at sea. As part of the prevention work carried out by NCI Exmouth information was provided on local hazards, beach flags and tides .Watchkeepers  were delighted to welcome  Exmouth Mayor , Steve Gazzard, who said “ The town and holidaymakers owe a great debt to NCI volunteers and are very grateful for the work that you do”. Ivor Jones, Station Manager, would like to express his thanks for all the donations and ongoing support from the public and from Exmouth.
