SEAHOUSES ANNUAL LIFEBOAT FETE 2020 & ARRIVAL OF NEW AWL

The new Seahouses Lifeboat, we have final confirmation, subject to weather and Covid developments, of her arrival at Seahouses.

SEAHOUSES ANNUAL LIFEBOAT FETE 2020

It is with regret that the Station Management Team have decided, after consultation with RNLI Officials, that  the Annual Lifeboat Fete, traditionally held on August Bank Holiday Monday, will be cancelled for 2020.

The decision is reluctantly based on the ability to protect our volunteer crew and staff, as well the public, in the current Covid 19 Pandemic, and current uncertainty about future safety guidance. The current time scale also leaves insufficient time to adequately plan the event. Hopefully it will be back in 2021, bigger, and better. We hope to see you all then, and thank you for your support in previous years.
