Scarborough Residents Urged To 'Love Your Lifeboat'

Scarborough Lifeboat Shannon

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 8:06am 16th February 2019. (Updated at 8:14am 16th February 2019)

The people of Scarborough are being asked to 'love their lifeboat' today (Saturday 16 February.)

A fundraising event with a Valentine's Day theme is being hosted by Scarborough RNLI between 10.00am-4.00pm.

There'll be a chance for people to get behind the scenes access to the station and the new Shannon-class lifeboat, various stalls, games and a chance to meet mascot Stormy Stan.

As second Coxswain Paul Huggins explains here:

 

He added:

"What the RNLI is trying to do now is actually engage a lot more with the community, try and get all the various groups that we can into the station and talk to them about more careful in and around the sea.

So that's why we've got some of the sea safety people there so we're going to talk to some of the kayakers, dog walkers, people like that."
