The Times has published a two page article today (21st August 2015) by journalist Kenny Farquharson, titled “10,000 supporters implore: keep St Abbs lifeboat station open”.
We’ve tried to be as positive as possible, because our goal is to stay under the umbrella of the RNLI,” Mr Gibson says. ”We’ve saved four lives since the closure was announced in May. You’ve seen the letter. She [Mr Jeffery’s friend) would not be here today were it not for the quick response of these guys. They were out in four minutes. “We’re going to stay optimistic right to the very end. If they’re going to close us, we need to be able to stand up on that brae above the harbour after September 8 and know with a clear conscience that we fought as hard as we
possibly could.” – Words of Euan Gibson quoted from the Article.
