RNLI Factory to be Built
Thursday 10 January 2013 00:00
The RNLI has been successful in applying for planning permission to build a new All-weather Lifeboat Centre at their Poole headquarters. This is great news not just for the RNLI who will save about £3.7m each year by being able to build their own boats but is also a great boost for the local economy with the creation of 90 new jobs. It will be interesting to see which other boat building yards spring up around Sunseeker and this new factory.
This is going to be an amazing achievement for the charity which does not receive any government money. It may well be the fact that they have to be so careful with money that they are taking this ambitious step. I wonder if some government funded emergency services could learn from their example and save money by building their own ambulances.
