Pakefield Coastwatch is a member of the Sea Safety Group, an Association of independent Coastal Surveillance stations
We are always looking for volunteers, so if you feel you would like to join us, give
the station a call on 07367 096492 or come and see us. Our lighthouse is located
in the grounds of Pontin`s Holiday Centre on the A12 at Pakefield.
It you are aged 18 years or more, male or female, then we would love to hear from
Our Watchkeeper volunteers receive ‘on the watch’ training in the basics of visual
and radio watch-keeping, reporting, simple ship recognition and the understanding
of navigational terms and charts. None of this is demanding, it just requires an
appreciation of the sea and those who use it.
All training is given on watch by our team of qualified Watchkeepers.
If you do not think that watch keeping is for you but still wish to offer your time,
we have an active group of “Friends” who help us with our fund raising.
If you would like to become a volunteer or require more information about Pakefield
Coastwatch, call Geoff Mann, the Station Manager, on 07788 377501.
