Llandudno RNLI host Carols, a choir and one crew for Christmas
On Sunday, Llandudno Lifeboat Station successfully hosted this year’s Christmas Concert at the boathouse in Craig y Don.
Members of Llandudno Lifeboat Station's operational crew, visits team, fundraisers, water safety team, shop volunteers, community members, supporters and family members came together on Sunday afternoon 11th December for a service of readings and carols interspersed with performances from Colwyn Male Voice Choir (Cor Meibion Colwyn).
With boats and gear moved outside the lifeboat house (but still fully operational) some 160 people, including 40 choir members, were able to enjoy this popular event which had not been possible since 2019 due to Covid-19.
The service, possible through the hard work of station volunteers, support from the choir (and chairs from Venue Cymru, Llandudno's theatre!) took place in cold temperatures but a warm atmosphere and was followed by hot drinks and a time of relaxed chat. Within an hour of the end of service, the boathouse had been almost miraculously restored to its normal operational state!
