Palling's Lifeboat

The independent lifeboat is always looking for volunteers for crewing both boat and land and / or to help with fundraising 

No previous experience necessary as full training will be given.  All we require is enthusiasm and a level of commitment.   If you are interested please contact the Coxswain on 01692 598487 any Thursday from 19.00 to 21.00 or Sunday from 09.00 to 12.00.    Alternatively pop along to the boathouse during these times or contact info@seapallinglifeboat.co.uk   You'll always be made welcome.

HELP REQUIRED!     Would anyone who is interested in fundraising please get in touch and help us raise money for this very necessary life-saving service.  Since we do not receive any grant from the Government nor funds from other rescue services, we have to rely on ourselves and the public's generosity to continue.  Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

High Tides

Booklets giving full tide tables for this area may be purchased from Sea Palling Post Office & General Store.

Below are the dates and times at which high water tides greater than 2 metres (m.),  predicted at Wells Quay, will reach Palling.  

It is possible that tidal surges could occur at other times if weather conditions are unfavourable. In particular, northerly winds increase the risk of flooding on the coast.  Most tidal flooding occurs when there is a tidal surge, so the timings below then become academic and are only to be used as a rough guide.
