Hoylake RNLI, West Kirby RNLI and New Brighton RNLI all came together for the first time for this festive family event.

Organised by RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew, the party was well attended and enjoyed by all. The children enjoyed games and music, with food and gifts to round off the evening. The appearance of Santa added even more magic to the afternoon and everyone was excited to see RNLI mascot Stormy Stan.

New Brighton RNLI volunteer Lee Arnall said: 'This year we held our biggest ever children’s Christmas party and it's been a tremendous success. The RNLI is a charity and a family, we want to celebrate that as much as we can.'
