MARINE Rescue Point Danger is looking for anyone who enjoys a chat but doesn't get too distracted by perfect views.

Shirley Williams has volunteered at the Point Danger store for more than eight years but is now looking for a replacement.

"I want to find someone to take over," Ms Williams said.

"I just want someone who has had retail experience and can be on call in an emergency.

"It is volunteer work but you do have a lovely view particularly when the whales go past."

Ms Williams also said the store was a major contributor to the Marine Rescue unit and was its main fundraising source.

"I work about 10 -12 hours a week but the biggest part of it has to be on call and have sufficient stuff in the shop," she said.

"The holidays can be flat out.

"There is always someone to talk to who comes in and every day can bring something different."

Ms Williams said anyone who takes over running of the shop will get all the help they need.

"I'm stepping down from managing the shop.  I will still be helping with the radio and I will still be helping the person who takes over the shop," she said.

Anyone interested can visit the shop at the foot of the Point Danger lighthouse.
