Letter: Rescue museum idea for RNLI site

I see that there is some discussion concerning what to do with the space between the new Lifeboat station and the Spa.

The lifeboat story is rich in sheer heroism and determination with many men giving their lives to help other mariners in dire trouble.

In addition to this the Humber Coastguard Operations Centre, off Limekiln Lane, is now responsible to the coast from the Scottish border down to Southwold in Suffolk. Given the new emerging importance of Bridlington in the field of air/sea rescue and its association with the sea, I was wondering if anybody had thought of having an air/sea rescue museum on the site. It could also include a memorial on the seafront for those souls who had given their lives for others, together with past stories of such heroism that they almost beggar belief.
