The Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) was formed during 1973 with a lifeboat station at the head of the Beachley ferry slipway right under the impressive Severn Bridge. In 1986 a second station was opened at Sharpness.

The photo shows the crew of the Sharpness boat returning to station following an exercise on the River Severn which involved a helicopter from Air Sea Rescue
