Barmouth RNLI's new inshore lifeboat is being officially named Craig Steadman in memory of the Holyhead lifeboat volunteer, who died in a motorbike accident in 2015.

Craig was a very loyal and respected RNLI crew member in Holyhead. He was very caring, incredibly kind and helpful to a fault. If anybody needed help in any way, Craig would be there. He had very large wings and sheltered many in need under them.

‘Sadly, his life was cut short at 28 years old. Through this lifeboat, Craig will live on. He will continue to help people, as he always did in life.’
