Three volunteers have decided to hang up their life jackets after helping at the RNLI’s shop in Weston for many years.
The shop at Anchor Head sells a number of items including souvenirs and clothing to raise money for the charity.
Three dedicated volunteers Rachel Heath, Jeff and Betty Mitchel have decided to step down after serving customers for a number of years.
Each volunteer was presented with a certificate by Richard Spindler - longest-serving crew member at Weston.
Peter Elmont, volunteer chairman of the Weston fundraisers said; 'Without our volunteers the lifesaving service could not happen.
