Seahouses RNLI is hoping that people will come and support the multi-agency safety day on Sat 28 August between 10am and 4pm..
In attendance will be HM Coastguard, Northumbria Police, Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service, B.D.M.L.R.
Seahouses RNLI lifeboats, Coastal Custodian (British Divers Marine Life Rescue), all operational requirements permitting.
Both lifeboats will be pulled out of the boathouse for people to see and the team is looking forward to meeting everyone.
The lifeboat station's Annual Fete on the August Bank Holiday Monday sadly wont be going ahead this year due to the station still being under RNLI Covid restrictions. This is because of the need to keep all the volunteer crew safe and the lifeboats operational and whilst the station is having the multi- agency day, this will only require a small amount of crew to attend.
