Llanduno Lifeboat Station and Friends V John Lawson Reay (SOS)

Over the last year or so i have been reading about Llandudno Lifeboat Station trying to build a new station on Llandudno Prom.

Now from what i have found out, John Lawson Reay and the SOS (Save Our Scenery) are against the building of the new station because it is close to a listed building, which is a wall.

Recently John Lawson Reay has been talking of the new station being built where the Llandudno sailing club is, but this isn't what Llandudno RNLI, and others, would want.

John Lawson Reay says he has been attacked for his position on his opposition to the new Lifeboat Station.

What i don't understand is that John Lawson Reay says he was a member of Llandudno Lifeboat Station, but why is he so against the station being built next to a wall, yes it is a listed building but it is still a wall.

I have a couple of friends who are related to some current crew members of Llandudno Lifeboat and i will write back with what i find out.

If anyone has more information comments are welcome.

I have a friend who served for many years as a boats crew member. He was in the crew at the time Mr lawson Reay says he was a shore member. Interestingly, the RNLI headquarters at Poole have no record od Mr Lawson Reay, but maybe thats just a slip up. My friend however, says that Mr Reay was always about with his camera, taking pictures to flog to the press.Its doubtful if he shared any of the proceeds with the RNLI.
