Lifeboat crew from Seahouses joined their water safety officers, Lynsey Carr and Iain Saunders, to engage with the public to promote their safety message and distribute safety material. The team had a great day, and met members of the public on a cool but sunny day on Beadnell Beach, as part of the Mayday Safety Campaign. Social distancing was observed throughout the event.

Seahouses RNLI Volunteer Water Safety Officer Lynsey Carr commented: 'We had a great day with a high level of (socially distanced) interaction with the public on the beach at Beadnell, and hope we were able to spread a basic yet effective safety message as part of our Mayday Safety Campaign.'

Seahouses RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager added: 'The team did a great job and I was stunned by the quality of the sand image – it was a real work of art. Sadly the rising tide would erase it from the beach after the event.'
