Lifeboats News Release

Scarborough RNLI’s temporary shop is to close on Sunday 24 July.

The shop, on the West Pier, is having to shut as contractors Bam Nuttall, who are building the new lifeboathouse, are scaling down their compound.

The lifeboathouse, which is due to be finished by the end of summer, will contain a new shop.
In the meantime, the temporary shop is open 10am-4pm daily.
