We were delighted to be able to present John Tookey, Deputy Manager of the National Coastwatch Institution, Wells with a cheque for £3,000. The donation was raised through our Talk of Wells series, which as usual has seen a series of fascinating men and women entertain full houses in the restaurant at The Globe. Guests have been delighted, shocked, awed and fascinated in equal measures with this seasons' speakers and we thank them for their time and energy and amazing careers.
Each autumn/winter we hold a series of fascinating talks in aid of a local charity. This year's Talk of Wells is in aid of the National Coastwatch Institution, Wells Lookout. Staffed 365 days of the year by volunteers, the Wells Coastwatch team watch over the tidal Outer Harbour Channel used by all vessels entering the port including twelve inshore fishing boats, local leisure sailors, a busy sailing school, windsurfers, water skiers as well as the busy Outer Harbour used by the windfarm support vessels. They also watch over the beach, the tidal area of Bob Halls Sand and have a distant view of the Rotterdam to Hull east coast shipping lane.
