Stevenson Welcomes Progress on Peterhead Lifeboat Services

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed progress to resume a lifeboat service following its suspension.

It comes after volunteers from the Peterhead RNLI crew were stood down earlier this month after alleged disputes among crew members.

Due to the decision, a staffing shortage was caused which forced the charity to halt the service.

An intense training programme is now progressing with the expectation services can be brought back as part of a phased return in the coming weeks.

This includes for during Peterhead Scottish Week which starts on July 20th.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I know the decision to suspend the service at Peterhead was not one taken easily.

“I am pleased to hear that important steps are being taken to bring the service back gradually for use on a full-time basis.

“The volunteers who give their all are dedicated and committed individuals and I would like to thank them and everyone at the RNLI for all they do.

“I would encourage everyone to come out in force and show their support during Peterhead’s Scottish Week.”
