Sarfend Visitors Book Launched

Thanks to those who made the trip to the end of Southend Pier today, to see the Sarfend Visitors Book placed in the safe custody of the team at the RNLI Gift Shop.

The idea for a Sarfend Visitors book came from  ex-pat Brian Mendes, who now lives in Ontario, Canada. Brian is a regular in our Sarfend Forum, and a video message from Brian was played to the assembled crowd. Brian called in using Skype, and spoke to The Worshipful the Mayor of Southend-on-Sea Councillor Ann Holland, who was there in person for the event. Brian also spoke to some of the assembled users of our forum, plus the RNLI Gift Shop staff.
