Scarborough lifeboathouse

Scarborough RNLI is looking forward to a busy Seafest fundraising weekend.
The lifeboat’s annual flag day​ on 27 July will be followed by an open day on 28 July.
They will coincide with the Seafest festival of music, theatre and cookery demonstrations, centred on the West Pier.
On the Saturday, the lifeboathouse will open from 10am. The inshore and all-weather lifeboats will be launched at about 1.30pm. The borough mayor, Cllr Hazel Lynskey, will board the Shannon for a quick spin around the bay.
This will be followed, at about 3pm, by a joint exercise, possibly with the lifeguards. Visitors will be able to pose for photos wearing lifeboat gear.
Collections will be taken along the seafront, in the town centre and at Proudfoots in Newby from about 9.30am to 4pm.
On the Sunday, Rev Richard Walker, lifeboat chaplain and vicar of St Mary’s, will conduct the Seafest church service in the lifeboathouse, starting at 11.15am.
The Shannon will be parked on the slipway for the service then moved back into the lifeboathouse, which will be open from noon until early evening.
The open day will also have a tombola, a hook-a-duck, a lucky dip, etc.
Both days will feature RNLI mascot Stormy Stan and stalls promoting the RNLI campaigns Respect the Water and Swim Safe. Visitors will be shown around the lifeboathouse and, for a small donation, allowed to board the Shannon. Tea and coffee will be served.
Anybody interested in joining the lifeboat crews will be welcome to attend and make enquiries about joining the RNLI team.
