Cowes Lifeboat Station

George Chastney

DSC_6927Lifeboat Press Officer (LPO)

George is no stranger to scribbling for the media. Having been a newspaper journalist virtually all his working life, and eight years as the IW Council’s Public Affairs Manager, he is perfect for the role of Press Officer. When he retired in 2003, he was persuaded to join the then Cowes Inshore Lifeboat Station as Press Officer – during this time, he made an extremely successful fund raising film about the Island’s four independent Lifeboat Stations. George is always waiting for the crews return, be it 3pm or 3am. He also helps on the Lifeboat Visits Team!
