Seahouses Lifeboat Fete enjoys some fine weather and good support
Bank Holiday Monday saw a reduced Lifeboat Fete at Seahouses this year due to the major harbour works.
Despite the reduced Harbour Fete this year, warm weather and some good public support made it a successful day. The refreshments in the boathouse, Tombola, and various stalls were kept busy throughout the event. The All Weather Lifeboat launched to give a brief demonstration, and the Inshore Lifeboat and Landrover were also on display.
Seahouses RNLI would like to thank everyone who supported the event, as well as the volunteers manning the various stalls and amusements, which all contributed to a successful day. The final total of funds raised is still being calculated.
Attached photos show the event, including Stormy Stan, always popular among our younger visitors.
