New Brighton RNLI mural celebrates local 'hero' who saved hundreds of lives
Long-serving volunteer lifeboat worker Mike Jones, who has spent 40 years protecting the people of New Brighton from danger at sea, is the subject of one of New Brighton's popular street murals


SMUG – Virginia Road

Further down Virginia Road, Australian street artist SMUG has painted a mural which pays homage to the RNLI. Painted in September 2020 it is a portrait of Mike Jones who had recently celebrated 40 years of service with the organisation. Indeed Mike still volunteers at the New Brighton Lifeboat station. The mural can be seen from the harbourside looking from there into the town.
