It's with tremendous sadness that we received the news today, that our Company Secretary Derek George passed away this morning. 


Our flags fly at half mast in honour of his sterling work over many years, which has kept Caister Lifeboat in service. 


Derek was the man who ensured our compliance with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, our insurances up to date, bargained the best prices for our utilities. 


With lifeboat blood; a descendant of Charles Bonney George, who died on the Beauchamp, Derek was immensely proud of Caister Lifeboat; as proud as we all are of him and his work.


He will be sorely missed by his wife Vivienne, his family and all of us.


As an independent Lifeboat we depend entirely on donations
