Revving up for lifeboat day at Burnham RNLI station
7:00am Wednesday 16th July 2014 in News
LIFEBOAT enthusiasts, supporters, and families are invited to join the volunteers at Burnham lifeboat station for their first annual lifeboat day.
The schedule for the day which runs from 10am until 4pm on July 27, is expected to include demonstrations and displays (lifeboats, lifeguards and shore based).
There will also be a lifeboat pull, flood team display, tombola, raffle, cake sale, treasure hunt, Stormy Stan throwing game, ‘Welly Wanging’ (With genuine RNLI wellies), face-painting, plus the lifeboat shop will be open as usual.
Organiser crewmember Tim Walters said: “Come along and enjoy the fun. Activities are still fluid at the moment, but up-to-date arrangements will be placed on our own station website burnham-on-searnli.org.uk.”
Lifeboat press Officer Mike Lang added: “We are still desperately short of a lifeboats visits officer, and this is a wonderful opportunity to see the lifeboat station and meet the crew, without any commitment.
“Additionally, if anyone wishes to donate a raffle or tombola prize, they will be able to drop it into our lifeboat shop at the station (Junction of Pier Street and Marine Drive), which is normally open every day between 10am and 4pm.”
