ENID Hill became involved in Port St. Mary RNLI back in 1991, after attending a coffee morning organised by the station’s Ladies Guild. Enid was an extremely active member of the Guild, taking on the position of Chairman for four years, and then later becoming President in 2006 and holding that role through until 2019.
When Enid was involved in the Ladies Guild, they hosted many events, including car boot sales, the station’s annual Lifeboat Day, coffee mornings and the extremely popular Autumn lunches.
At the presentation, Sir Miles Walker, the President of Port St. Mary RNLI’s fundraising branch, presented Enid with a bouquet as well as a certificate of thanks for her many years of dedication and service to the station.
Sir Miles Walker was also delighted to present a 30 years’ service medal to David Kneen. David joined Port St. Mary RNLI in 1989 and became a volunteer crew member, firstly on the RNLB Gough Ritchie, and then the RNLB Gough Ritchie 2 from 1998.
David then took on Deputy Launch Authority and Lifeboat Press Officer roles for the station before becoming the station’s Lifeboat Operations Manager in 2011. David stepped down from that role in 2019 but has remained an active member of the fundraising branch ever since.
Between Enid and David, they have dedicated over 60 years’ service to Port St. Mary RNLI, and during the 30 year period that they have been involved, Port St. Mary RNLI has saved 63 lives.
Everyone at Port St. Mary RNLI wishes to thank and congratulate both Enid and David for their years of service and dedication to helping Save Lives At Sea.
