3rd May 2019. This week the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth, Councillor and Mrs Borthwick, paid an official visit to the lookout station at Hengistbury Head.

Both the Mayor and Mayoress were eager to get hands-on with both the APMs and the AIS system and were in awe of the ‘stunning views’ we see from the Head They were also delighted to have the ‘Polar Bear’ pointed out - a first for them! The Mayor also took this opportunity to present watchkeeper Jeff Baggott with his epaulettes after he passed his assessment

It was a very pleasant and positive meeting on both sides with the Mayor commenting on the ‘interesting and valuable’ work we do and Chris Lloyd-Smith taking the opportunity to discuss some of our ongoing council issues.

The afternoon was a great opportunity to further strengthen NCI Hengistbury Head’s ties with Bournemouth Council and promote both our service to the local community and the NCI’s work in general.
