Berwick RNLI take to the stage

Coxswain Kevin Knox this week has been steering Deputy Launching Authority Gordon Blackett and Press and Education Officer Haze Bettison, through their paces on stage as Stage Manager where they have taken part in the local pantomime, The Snow Queen.

They all had their fingers crossed that their pagers did not go off during the performance. The only rescue Kevin had was finding Gordon the Snowman's head when he lost it.
