  1. Great pictures Sue love the panorama ! Looks to have been a good turnout...several Lifeboat days here too, very well supported and because of the wonderful weather families were enjoying the beach too. Many thanks.macca.

    1. When the day started out with thick sea mist I was really worried that people wouldn't turn up - fortunately the mist lifted enough to encourage the crowds out. Still raising money for the new Lifeboat House - so annoying that they are not allowed to shake the buckets - people just walking past ! Sue
