Moelfre Lifeboat History on Anglesey in North Wales.

A stunning six foot bronze statue of Dic Evans, famous as the one time coxswain of the Moelfre Lifeboat was unveiled on November 23rd 2004. The statue was sculpted by Sam Holland.

Dic Evans was one of the few to win the R.N.L.I. Gold Medal twice. The statue will take your breath away, and this may be because the sculptor - Sam Holland - would have put so much in to it, as her grandfather served on the Moelfre Lifeboat with Dic Evans.

The £40,000 cost of the statue was raised by appeal, and was helped in no small way by the local artist, the late Sir Kyffin Williams, who raised £20,000 via an arts sale.



Moelfre lifeboat station was first opened in 1830, and has had a remarkable history of bravery. Its crews have been awarded no less than 37 medals, four of which were gold - the V.C. of the lifeboat institution. The other 2 gold medals were awarded to: Captain Owen Jones - volunteer lifeboatman, and William Roberts - second coxswain.
