Mermaids and pirates wanted at Lifeboat Day
This year’s Harbour Day takes place on Sunday 30 August and will feature all the family fun we love. In addition to the stalls, raffles, live music, food and the classic motorbikes along the quayside, this year there will be activities also on the Little Shore.
The main lifeboat display takes place in the estuary at 1.30pm and will be accompanied by a commentary from the Coastguards.
This year everyone is encouraged to don fancy dress! “We look forward to seeing the quayside awash with sea creatures, pirates, lobsters, and mermaids! Parents and adults are welcome to dress up too, join in with the Committee and crew in ensuring that we have a fun packed day raising money to meet the £200,000 target for a new Shannon Class Lifeboat” said organiser Katrina Cassidy.
