10th April 2020. The National Coastwatch Institution would like to wish all our volunteer watch keepers, supporters and their families a very happy Easter.

Easter this year will be very different to what we are used to, but we wish all our dedicated volunteers and their families a Very Happy Easter.

Stay home and stay safe - and look forward to the time we can all get back to doing the essential work we all love.

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.
