Sarah honoured by the RNLI

01 November 2023

We are proud to announce that Sarah Chilver, Duty Officer in our VTS team, has been presented with a long service award medal from the RNLI.

Di Bush (Harwich Coxswain) and Graeme Richardson (Area Life Saving Manager) from the RNLI attended our operational building, Navigation House, in Harwich on Tuesday 31 October, to hand over the award to Sarah, recognising her 30 years’ service as a VTS launch authority for the RNLI.

Sarah’s colleagues from the VTS department and the Executive team were also in attendance to congratulate Sarah and hear her stories and memories.

Sarah continues to provide this vital service to the RNLI and both the Authority and RNLI passed on their grateful thanks.
