Another successful Storm Force day at Holyhead RNLI
The rain came but it never stopped the fun for the 30 children who joined the volunteer crew at Holyhead, with the highlight of the day a special appearance from the RNLI's very own Stormy Stan.
This was the fourth annual Storm Force event at Holyhead Lifeboat Station, which was well supported by crew and volunteers.
The day involved tours of the station, the inshore and all-weather lifeboat, as well as quizzes, games and dressing up for both the Storm Force members and their parents. The event culminated in a ‘mock’ rescue with Stormy Stan jetting off to rescue a crew member in the inshore lifeboat.
