About
Remembering past sacrifice to inspire future generations. Many brave and selfless RNLI volunteers are remembered proudly in their local communities. However, the RNLI memorial sculpture in Poole is the only place where each and every one of them is named together. The RNLI hopes that future generations of lifeboat crew, lifeguards, supporters and fundraisers will find it a source of inspiration. Ultimately, the memorial reminds us all that there are still people who volunteer to carry out selfless acts of heroism to help others - we will always remember their sacrifice.

Something of Interest in a town that is becoming very bland

If you spot this, then you are by the RNLI college. If it is open, then the restaurant and bar are worth frequenting. If you want a hotel room, try this place, the money you pay goes to a good cause

Striking sculpture

This is on the main road adjacent to one the large RNLI institutions in the area. It's a moving tribute to the volunteers over the years who have given their lives to save others.

If you're visiting RNLI college, make sure you stop for a few minutes to marvel at this incredible sculpture. It sums up the great work the RNLI do in a very simplistic way

Amazing Sculpture
Apr 2019 • Solo
Amazing sculpture outside the RNLI college. A fitting inspiration to lost volunteers and their names are all etched around the base. Makes you stop and think as so many names... an interesting and inspirational sculpture.

This is a lovely piece of art that is a fitting memorial for the heroic RNLI. It is appropriate given the relevance of the sea to this part of the country.

It is free to visit and enjoy the beauty of the memorial.

Man the lifeboats!

If your in Poole it’s worth stopping by the RNLI Memorial for a quick look! 10-15 minutes should be enough to appreciate this beautiful sculpture which is a tribute to every lifeboat crew member who lost their life while endeavouring to save others at sea
