On Thursday, Peterhead's volunteer lifeboat crew assisted the coastguard at Slains Castle. A small dog had fallen over the cliffs and its owners had dialled 999 for assistance. Happily, despite the fall, the dog was found safe and well, he was then returned to very grateful owners.

The shout was followed by an invitation over to the Fish Market, on Friday, where some of the crew were treated to lots of different dishes to mark Sea Food Week with the organisation 'Sea Fish' and celebrity chef Rachel Khoo. The crew got to enjoy all sorts of seafood tempura, which could not have been fresher, having come straight from the fish market that morning.

With Sea Food Week falling during the RNLI's Fish Supper campaign, there couldn't have been a better time to enjoy a meal and remind the public that they can support their local crew just by hosting a fish supper! https://rnli.org/fish-supper
