The evening promises to be a celebration of all the hard work and commitment the volunteer team have put in over the last 12 months, with the presentation of awards to recognise the effort the team have put in.

There will also be several awards given to individual members to recognise the length of service and dedication they have shown over the years of being a RNLI volunteer.
