Lifeboats News Release
Author: Paul Frost
Crew and supporters will be opening Rhyl lifeboat station to the public this weekend.
On Sunday 26 August the volunteer crew and fundraisers for Rhyl RNLI lifeboat station will be opening the station to the public as part of their Open Day.
The Public is invited to look around the station, and the lifeboats will be on the promenade for the public to view and go on board.
The souvenir shop will be open, and there will be various stalls and static displays by local clubs and associations.
The Open Day is from 11am to 4pm, and is being held on the same day as Denbighshire County Council’s “Fun in the Sun” event at the Rhyl Events arena, next to the boathouse.
So why not make a day of it, and help support a worthy charity to save lives at sea.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland from 236 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 180 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
