Welcome to the Burnham-on-Sea Lifeboat Station website. This site is maintained by lifeboat station personnel and as such is the official Burnham-on-Sea RNLI website. Within these pages you will find station history and indicative operational information, detailing the service provided to those who spend time on the water off of the Somerset coast, from Watchet to Brean Down.

Our station at Burnham-On-Sea has only been operational since December 23rd 2003 and is crewed by a highly trained, efficient and enthusiastic bunch of men and women, supported in the background by admin staff, station supporters, shop staff, fundraisers and many others.

Through the dedication and training of around 30 volunteer boat crew, shore crew and officers at Burnham-On-Sea, our role is to 'Save Lives at Sea'. Please do not forget that our life saving activities are only possible because of voluntary contributions. Please support the RNLI.

More assessments passed and training plans completed.

Well done to our 2 shore crew who passed their assessments last week which means they have now completed their training plans.

2 members of the shore crew have agreed to take on driver training, this will improve our day duty driver coverage.They will now start the driver training plan. This will involve both hands on training at the station and going away for further tuition. Which of course means more time away from their families.

The volunteers show  great team work in working together to get each other through the assessments. And we can not do either our training or shouts without the support of our families and your generous donations.

The successful RNLI play 'Out of The Mist' comes to Burnham-on-Sea's Princess Theatre and Arts centre.

The play is being brought to you by the Princess Theatre group of Burnham-on-Sea. The scenes will played out on the Princess stage, Friday 7 November, starting at 6.00 pm.

Featuring some local celebrities in cameo roles, and several of the scenes specially adapted locally by the playwright Alan Tyson, be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotion, as members of BOSH Youth Theatre and The Princess Theatre Company, assisted by RNLI volunteers, bring the story to Burnham-on-Sea.
