The biggest event on the Exmouth Lifeboat Fundraising Team’s calendar, the lifeboat station Open Day will take place on Sunday 21 August this year. Situated on Queens Drive, the event will be held between 10am and 4pm.
Dedicated volunteers are currently busy organising stalls, raffle prizes and making produce to sell in order to raise money to help save lives at sea.
Crew volunteers and officers will be providing ‘all hands on deck’ during the event. They will be available to give tours of the lifeboat station and the all-weather Shannon class lifeboat, R and J Welburn. The event is free to visitors and all are welcome to come and see for themselves what it takes to become a life-saving volunteer.
The volunteer Sea Safety team will be on hand to provide free advice and a lifejacket clinic. RNLI Lifeguards will be available to give beach safety advice.
Volunteer inshore lifeboat crew are due to give a demonstration onboard the D-class George Bearman, at some point during the event. However, this demonstration is dependent on weather conditions and operational availability.
