Although Seahouses had become quiet, due to the cold and wintry weather, Seahouses lifeboat crew still went ahead with their Christmas Fayre.

The Shannon could be viewed, temporarily moored in the harbour, while the SLRs unit, D class inshore lifeboat and station Landrover were all on view.

Seasonal refreshments were available in the boathouse, with several stalls, including a popular Tombola.

Musical entertainment was available from the local Village Voices Choir, and the RNLI Face to Face Team were also on hand, recruiting supporters from the visitors and passers by.

Despite the miserable weather, the event raised over £400 for RNLI funds.

Organiser Water Safety Officer and crew member Lynsey Carr said: 'Even though it was a cold and miserable day, those who attended helped make it a worthwhile fundraising event for us, and hopefully enjoyed the fayre.'
