Countdown to Lifeboat Day 2023
The volunteer team here at Newbiggin are actively getting things ready for the forthcoming lifeboat day at the end of July 2023.
The following Sunday 30th July 2023 sees Newbiggin Lifeboat Day getting underway at 1.30pm with a variety of stalls and attractions in and around the lifeboat station. There will be displays and demonstrations undertaken by the lifeboat subject to operational demands throughout the afternoon.
For those wishing to enjoy a selection of home made cakes and scones outside the boathouse with the serving of hot and cold drinks. Stalls include tombola, souvenirs, raffles,bric a brac and lots of other entertainment on the day.
Please come along and give us your support for our major fundraising day. There is ample free parking at Church Point next to Newbiggin Maritime Centre and this promises to be a busy day for our coastal community with a variety of events taking place.
If you want to support now then why not call along to the station any weekend to buy some raffle tickets and be in with a chance to win one of many prizes. Tickets are priced at 20p each.
