Seahouses lifeboat station hold an Open Day at Beadnell Harbour
On Easter Saturday 16 April, Seahouses lifeboat station held an Open Day on Beadnell Harbour.
The event was very popular, attracting a considerable number of visitors, and generated a lot of positive feedback.
RNLI volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer, Ian Clayton added: 'It was a really good day for us and great to be able to engage with the public once more. I think the public really enjoyed our visit, and a look around the Shannon was probably the highlight of the day for many of them.
'We were also looking to recruit some new crew, who need not be in the area all of the year round. Anyone interested should call the station for further information on 01665 720370 or call Stephen on 07799 091300, without any obligation.'
