We are one of the growing number of stations manned by volunteer men and women. located around the coast of mainland Britain. All stations carry out the same task which is to assist Her Majesty's Coastguard in their task of helping people in trouble, on or near the sea.
HM Coastguard recognises the worth of coastal surveillance stations and many including ours at Pakefield hold "Declared Facility Status" which means that they are recognised as contributing to the safety of life by operating a coastal station. Pakefield Coastwatch is responsible to HMCG and operates from approx Lowestoft to the village of Kessingland and as far out to sea, as visibility allows.
Pakefield Coastwatch is part of the Sea Safety Group a charitable trust, which is an independent group of coastal watch stations.
We are always looking for volunteers so if you feel you would like to join us, give the station a call on 01502-584400 or come and see us, we are in the grounds of Pontin`s Holiday Centre on the A12 at Pakefield. We would love to hear from you, all training is given on watch by our team of Senior Watchkeepers.
