SARA Rescue new lifeboat at Newport

Severn Area Rescue Association » Blog Archive » Official Launch of the new Newport Lifeboat SARA Lifeboat 14 ‘The Maureen Easton’ - SARA is an Inshore Rescue boat and Land Search organisation covering the Severn Estuary and the surrounding area


We are delighted to invite our community to join us for the launch ceremony of our new Lifeboat, the Maureen Easton, designated SARA 14.

The ceremony will be held on Saturday 22nd October at The Riverfront Theatre, Bristol Packet Wharf, Newport. NP20 1HG.
We invite you to join us and Maureen's family and friends to witness the launching ceremony in her memory.

Refreshments will be availble for purchase at the Riverfront Theatre and there will be an opportunity for you and your family to view the Lifeboat and meet some of our crew.
A number of dignitaries have been invited, including the Mayor & representatives from the Coastguard and other agencies will also be present.

SARA 14 represents an important mile...stone for us, as we continue to develop our Search & Rescue assets for Newport in support of your community.

Following the ceremony, we hope you'll stay as we will launch SARA 14 to display some of its capabilities.
