Seahouses RNLI would like to say 'a big thank you' to all who supported the Multi Agency Safety Day, which was a great success and will be repeated next year in May.
In attendance were - HM Coastguard (Seahouses) - Northumbria Police - Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service (Seahouses) - B.D.M.L.R. (British Divers Marine Life Rescue) - Coastal Custodian, and - SEAHOUSES RNLI Lifeboats.
A special thank you goes also to George and Ailsa Shiel, of Golden Gate Farne Island Boat Trips, who generously donated to the RNLI, a sailing around the Farne Islands. Several lifeboat crew accompanied the paying passengers, and the Inshore lifeboat escorted the Golden Gate for part of its voyage.
George and Ailsa were presented with some wine and flowers in gratitude from the Seahouses Lifeboat Crew, for their support, on their return to Seahouses Harbour.
