Mark Williams, Member of Parliament for Ceredigion, has tabled a motion in Parliament recognising and commending volunteers of the Aberystwyth RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) for the essential service that they help to provide.
A number of Aberystwyth RNLI volunteers recently received high profile awards in the RNLI’s New Year’s Honour’s.
The motion pays specific tribute to Bryan Pugh Jones who was made an Honorary Life Governor by the RNLI Board of Trustees for his service to the Aberystwyth Lifeboat, the highest award that the RNLI can confer on a volunteer; Richard Griffiths and Mildred Jones who were awarded the RNLI Gold Badge in recognition of their individual services to the Institution; and David and Sonia Jenkins on their long and dedicated service.
Mark said “It is fantastic to see volunteers at our Aberystwyth lifeboat station receiving the recognition that they deserve. Many have spent large parts of their lives giving back to the community and it is only right that they receive recognition for their long and dedicated service both to the RNLI and to the people of Ceredigion.
“It is their hard work that ensures that our lifeboat station continues to provide such an essential service, and I wish the Aberystwyth RNLI and its volunteer’s success long into the future.”
