Mark Houghton takes over as chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group

A FORMER treasurer and shore crew member with the RNLI in Lyme Regis has returned as chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group.

Mark Houghton, 57, has just begun a four-year stint to co-ordinate the activities of the lifeboat operational team, the fundraising guild and the RNLI’s beach lifeguards.

Mark, who lives near Bridport and takes over from John Dover, who performed the role for 18 months, said: “Another important part of my activities will be as a point of contact for other local organisations or individuals regarding all aspects of the RNLI in the area.

“This could involve discussing co-operation with other local services, local authorities, or individuals who want to volunteer with the RNLI or simply have concerns to raise.”
