Ramsgate enjoys a successful Sea Safety Day
Local PCSO John Litchfield organised a very successful Sea Safety Day which took place yesterday in glorious sunshing along the lower prominade behind Ramsgate's Main Sands.
Representatives of both the RNLI's Lifeboats and Lifeguards were in attendance and the opportunity for many children to dress up in mini lifeboat crew or lifeguard clothing and sit aboard the lifeguard's personal water craft for a photo was a definite 'hit'. A highlight of the event for many people was the arrival off the Sands at 11.30am of Ramsgate RNLI's two lifeboats, the Trent class all weather lifeboat Esme Anderson and the Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Claire and David Delves, which carried out a much appreciated demonstration.
Ramsgate RNLI's thanks go to John Litchfield for all of his hard work in organising such a successful day.
