Thank You – Millbrook Village

The Station Manager and members of the watchkeeping team visited Millbrook Village in Exeter to receive a magnificent donation to Exmouth National Coastwatch station. The residents had chosen Exmouth NCI as their charity of the year for 2023 and raised funds through numerous events over the year. Exmouth NCI are an integral part of the national maritime search and rescue services that work with HM Coastguard and the RNLI keeping watch over Exmouth beach, the Exe estuary and Budleigh Salterton coastline 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The Station Manager thanked the assembled residents for their exceptional generosity before being presented with a cheque by Mr David Phillips Chair of the Residents Association.

With the agreement of the Millbrook residents engaged in the fundraising, the funds will contribute towards the installation of an additional CCTV camera to cover Sandy Bay, an incident hotspot that is currently unseen by the watchkeepers with existing systems.
