BARMOUTH RNLI DOG SHOW
Barmouth RNLI’s popular Dog Show proved to be a crowd-puller again this year, on Sunday 2nd July 2017.
From 1.00 pm owners arrived at the Lifeboat Station as to enter their dogs of all sizes and in a variety of categories. Winners and runners up of each category received a certificate and rosette and the event was very ably adjudicated by Ed Moss from Williams’ Veterinary practice, assisted by Head Launcher Jackie Thomas.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
