Talk of Wells - Jon Gifford OBE

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.

Tonight's talk will be with Jon Gifford, OBE, the Honorary President of National Coastwatch. Jon association with this incredible charity began when he joined as a volunteer watchkeeper in 1999. Since then, he has been a Trustee, and the Chairman of NCI, before becoming Honorary President in 2011. His talk, appropriately, is entitled 'A Life on Watch'.


So, join us on specific Mondays through the Autumn and Winter when a special menu of two courses and a glass of wine will be served for £23.50. We will donate £5.00 to the fund for every person eating. Come and enjoy talks from the men and women who will talk with passion about their lives and adventures.
