During the last 6 months or so I have been so fortunate to get to know a number of the crew, all volunteers who give their time and risk their lives working for Wells RNLI.

Working on the sea has gifted me opportunities to get much closer to the community of Wells ~next~the~Sea. 

There are many gifted and special people who have become friends. It is such a treat when I am out on the sea and I get the opportunity to take close photographs of this special lady. Doris Mann is currently the oldest serving offshore lifeboat working in the country. She is a Mersey Class who is due to retire after 36 years of service.
