Amble Lifeboat Day 2014

Amble Lifeboat Sunday 17th February 2013_1Amble Lifeboat Day will take place on Sunday 24th August  2014. The service will start at 10am and the day will be opened by Anne Cleeves, local author.

It is a fun day out for all of the family with our usual cake stall, tombolas, books, bric a brac, water or wine, toys, souvenir stall and children’s games. Refreshments will be available upstairs in the boathouse, with sandwiches, cakes and scones and other yummy things to eat.  There will be rides for the children on the Little Shore, a Grand Raffle for a painting by local artist Jimmy Thompson, plus other prizes and Stormy Sam, the RNLI Mascot, will be putting in an appearance.

This year we will have representatives from the Fire Service and other attractions including Paintballing and Classic Motorcycles. You can have your photograph taken with them.  By popular request there will be live music with the return of the Newcastle All Stars Steel Band.

There will be a visit by the Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer, unless called out on an emergency.  The helicopter will take part in an exercise with the Amble Lifeboat, with a commentary given by one of the Coastguards. This may be the last year we will be able to see the helicopter working with the Amble crew and Lifeboat, so do come along.

This year, the proceeds from Lifeboat Day will go into the fund for the new ‘Shannon’ class Lifeboat, which is due to arrive in Amble in 2017. Please come along, have fun and support the RNLI.
