Take a closer look at the RNLI and what we do at the Troon Lifeboat Station Open Day.
See aboard our Trent class all weather lifeboat 'RNLB Jim Moffat' and D class inshore lifeboat 'Sheena' at our RNLI lifeboat station, Harbour Road, Troon on Saturday 20th July 2019 from 11am-4pm.
You will also get the chance to speak to our volunteer RNLI crew to find out about the training we carry out and the variety of callouts we attend.
At the lifeboat station there will also be various stalls and attractions as well as other emergency services.
This is a great day out for the whole family, so why not come along and support your local lifeboat station.
We look forward to seeing you all!
