As some of you may be aware there are plans to close Liverpool Coastguard Station. There is a campaign to stop this from happening. The closing of Liverpool Coastguard Station will have an impact on all of us, whether it is getting weather/tidal conditions, using their local knowledge to assist in navigation or more seriously if you should require the assistance from themselves and the RNLI due to an incident. Their local knowledge and professionalism is unquestionably a very valuable asset for mariners in our area.
