Branch formed in 1993

The branch was formed by a small group of dedicated supporters who live in and around the Wotton-under-Edge area.
(Charfield, Kingswood, North Nibley and Wotton itself)

We support as many of the local fayres and shows with our Souvenir Stall as we can (weather permitting!) as well as holding our own fundraising events.

We no longer collect door to door but still have our Flag Day when we undertake a street collection in the High Street in Wotton.

We have also held illustrated talks by notable speakers at Cotswold Edge Golf Club.

Our Chairman and Treasurer have given and continue to give educational talks to local groups and schools.
For further details of opportunities for talks please contact John Barnett.

We also have contacts for additional members who will give talks to any group or organisation - All age groups.

See 'Links' page for details of Safety and Educational material and information from the RNLI.

    We are holding another Guest Speaker evening at the Cotswold Edge Golf Club on Wednesday 22nd Feb at 8pm.
    This year’s speaker is Captain Thomas “Sticky” Bunn entitled 'Farewell Yellow, Hello Red & White! - Recent Changes to UK Helicopter Search & Rescue',
    Previously an RAF pilot flying Sea King SAR (search and rescue) helicopters from RAF Valley on Anglesey, Captain Bunn now works for Bristow Helicopters, flying helicopters out of Caernarfon Airfield as part of the team providing the civilian SAR helicopter service for the UK on behalf of HM Coastguard.

    Captain Bunn’s illustrated talk will cover both his experiences at RAF Valley on Anglesey (flying the yellow RAF Sea King) over the coasts and mountainous areas of North Wales and the change to flying the Sikorsky S92 (in the red and white HM Coastguard colours), following the MOD’s decision to no longer provide the civilian airborne SAR role.

    Captain Bunn was brought up in North Nibley and went to Katharine Lady Berkeley School -
