The project has involved staff and students from nearby Broadlea Primary School as part of the Lake Community Kids Project, with sponsorship from Island Line and the Association of Community Rail Partnerships.
A spokesperson for Broadlea Primary has said:
“We were delighted to be given some funding to do a new project at Lake train station which involves our local community. Picking Sandown and Shanklin independent lifeboat was an easy choice as they are always willing to give us sea survival talks and let us visit their station.
“We had big plans before the lockdown for their Go Orange day and it seemed a shame to not go ahead with those plans. Therefore to put a smile on everyone’s face we have put the lifeboat planter at the station as planned for everyone to see while out on their daily exercise.
“We are forever grateful to the crew at SSILB and we’re thankful to have them still keeping the bay safe through these uncertain times”.
