Peter Pan & Captain Hook Respect the Water

Lifeboats News Release

The cast of this year's Rhyl Panto visited Rhyl lifeboat station last Friday to help promote the charity's Respect The Water campaign.

The crew at Rhyl lifeboat station had some lively visitors last Friday as the cast of Rhyl's 2016 pantomime 'Peter Pan' visited the lifeboat station to launch this years production.

Peter Pan played by Derek Moran, presenter of Channel 5's 'Milkshake' and Captain Hook played by Mark Little from the Australian TV soap 'Neighbours', took part in a swashbuckling sword fight on the back of the all-weather lifeboat Lil Cunninham, watched on by Mr Smee and Wendy.

Afterwards they joined Coxswain Martin Jones and crew member Ben Hirst in an attempt to move the RNLI tonne of water outside the station to help highlight the charity's Respect The Water campaign.

Martin Jones says 'We'd like to thank the cast of this years pantomime 'Peter Pan' in joining us to help promote an important message about staying safe in and near water around our coast line and inland. Even a pirate captain knows to Respect The Water'.
