Lifeboat Station to hold open day
Exmouth Lifeboat Station is throwing open its doors for a day of fun and fundraising.
The annual open day will be held at the new boathouse on Queens Drive this Saturday, August 20, from 10am to 4pm.
The event will be opened by town crier Roger Bourgein. There will be various games and stalls available, including a jam and cakes stall, bric-a-brac, face-painting, a tombola and a raffle.
The all-weather lifeboat Margaret Jean will be on display throughout the day, and there will also be exciting demonstration launches to give visitors a glimpse of the craft in action.
Visitors will also be able to chat to the lifeboat’s volunteer crew and support team, along with representatives from the coastguard, lifeguards and sea safety advisers, who will be on hand to give free beach, sea, boat and life-jacket safety advice.
