HIGH SHERIFF VISITS NCI PORTSCATHO TO START HIS TOUR OF THE CORNISH NCI STATIONS

11th May 2022.  The High Sheriff of Cornwall is undertaking a tour of planned visits to all of the National Coastwatch Institution stations along the coast of Cornwall.

High Sheriff Andrew Williams started his tour with a visit to NCI Portscatho which is the smallest station in the county.  In spite of the rain, gale force winds and a walk across the muddy field, he enjoyed the visit and was very impressed with the station and the NCI in general.  The High Sheriff intends to visit all the other Cornish stations before October and has set a target of raising some £65,000 for the NCI stations in Cornwall.

About

Currently almost 60 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.
