Heave ho, my hearties. That was the call in October, 1974, when these Terrington St Clement Scouts and Cub Scouts were among 48 boys who took part in a sponsored boat pull as part of the national “Operation Lifeboat” weekend.
The boys towed the boat for seven muscle-aching miles to try and raise £100 for Wells lifeboat as their contribution towards the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute
