THIS dramatic picture was taken by Sarah Harris crew member at Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat on Sunday when the boat was launched on exercise in windy conditions.

Pett Level Rescue Boat now has a new larger boat house thanks to a massive local fund-raising effort.

The boat, which is entirely financed and operated by volunteers, plays a vital role in coastal safety, often backing up the larger lifeboats at Hastings and Rye.

Chairman Steve Hill said: “Thanks to new equipment we have introduced in recent years, it now means the boat can be launched in almost any conditions.”
