15th December 2019. NCI Felixstowe have received an early Christmas present thanks to a generous donation from their local golf club.

Each year the captain of Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club chooses a local charity for his yearly tenure. This year the captain Mr. Ian Buxton chose Felixstowe NCI as the local charity. The photograph shows Ian presenting a cheque for £850 to Senior Watchkeeper Tony Belenkin.

NCI Felixstowe Station Manager Julian Milsom said “This money has been donated to help in the future installation of two more webcams to enable us to see present areas of the beach which we are unable to see. Thank you to Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club for their generosity”.

Currently 56 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
