150 years of the RNLI lifeboat

Last evening a service was held in Christ Church, North Shields to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Tynemouth Lifeboat. The crew was presented with Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medals and a RNLI 150 years Vellum. Tynemouth Lifeboat is commemorated in a stained glass window in the Mariners’ Chapel, which was lit from outside for the occasion.

Views of the chapel and the window may be found here: Chapel
