Beaumaris Lifeboat Open Day for 2016 Cancelled

Lifeboats News Release

The RNLI guild and crew at Beaumaris have been holding a Lifeboat Open Day for many years. This year’s event was planned for the 20th August but had to be postponed due to the forecasted adverse weather conditions.

Initially, it was postponed to the 11th September to coincide with the Beaumaris Food Festival.  It had been planned for several stalls and a stage to be placed on the green area and to invite other Emergency Services to attend the day.
However, as the Food Festival has several stalls within the same area it would be unsuitable to set up alongside the event without causing safety concerns for the public.  The RNLI Beaumaris Lifeboat Open Day committee have reluctantly decided to cancel.
On the 11th September the Lifeboat will be on display outside the Lifeboat Station to support the Food Festival as an additional attraction. Whilst within the Boathouse, tea and coffee will be served together with a tombola stall.
The committee would like to thank all the stall holders and supporters who had agreed to attend this year’s RNLI Beaumaris Lifeboat Open Day and look forward to their support next year.
