Bridlington Lifeboat crew lines up for a special tribute to volunteer Alan Walker
Members of Bridlington’s Lifeboat crew have paid a special tribute to volunteer Alan Walker who held the post of Lifeboat Visits Officer (LVO), informing and educating visitors in sea safety and the RNLI.
Ahead of an all-weather boat exercise, the crew lined up next to the vessel and hold a minute’s silence for ‘a true gentleman’.
A statement on the Bridlington RNLI’s Facebook page said: “Before our ALB exercise, the crew lined up to pay our respects to Alan Walker LVO at our station for many years, who passed away recently, with a minute’s silence.
“We were trying to work out how many children and adults benefited from Alan’s training and we worked out it runs into the thousands.
“A true gentleman and a station favourite, he will be sadly missed.”
