It only takes a short while to call in the shop to make a purchase or two or to make a donation to show respect to all the lifeboat crews who put their lives on the line trying to help those in need.

Noticed that they now have a new building housing an inshore RIB and its pickup truck. The lifeboat was pushed into the sea by a small tractor a bit like an aircraft tug; it reminded me of Bridlington in Yorkshire.

You never know when you might need the services of the RNLI, so we always buy a few items. The kids got a toy each, tea towel for hubby and a magnet for me!

Popped in our visit to Criccieth beach - we bought some gifts from the shop, and the lady was very helpful in finding out the tidal timetable for us. We went to look at the lifeboat and when we returned that evening, were lucky enough...More

Visited with family and dogs today. More than happy to support such a valuable cause. Small station but still great to find out all about your local RNLI.

Great small local lifeboat station, staff very friendly and approachable - watch out for the regular launch drills each Thursday (late) afternoon

All the staff were friendly and we had a lovely short visit on route to our holiday destination. Well worth a visit. Best RNLI shop to date!

Yes,we took a dog in but I agree with the other answer, it is such a small building it is easy to tie the dog up outside.
