The dreadful weather on the day certainly didn’t dampen their spirits and on behalf of us all at the station we are extremely grateful for their kind donation and support.

Lizard Lifeboat Chair Dr Chris Cuff, Lifeboat Operations Manager Ned Nuzum, Boathouse Manger Jeff Ashby and lifeboat crew members Adam Weston and Sam James all went along during the afternoon. Dr Cuff was asked to present the trophies to those triumphant in the ploughing matches.
