Newhaven lifeboat Coxswain Paul Legendre had the honour of meeting with Her Majesty the Queen during her visit to the town last week.

Her Majesty, accompanied by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, visited Bickerstaff’s fish market and shop on the West Quay. She met local fisherman, boat builders and the emergency services including the Newhaven Coxswain Paul Legendre. Paul said it was ‘an incredibly proud moment to meet her’.
