Peterhead Lifeboat Station will hold its annual fun day on Saturday, September 8, from 12pm to 4 pm.

The day will give the opportunity for local folk to have a look around the Tamar-class lifeboat where the crew will be on hand to answer any questions.

In addition the lifeboat press officer will be conducting audio visual presentations throughout the afternoon on the work of Peterhead Lifeboat to give an insight into the training and services volunteer crews do to help others in need of assistance.

There will also be various stalls selling a wide range of goods from local traders, including Lifeboat souvenirs and a bottle stall to name but a few.

Other attractions on the day will include: RNLI Flood Rescue, HM Coastguard, Fire Brigade, Police, Tarlair Model Boat Club, Sea Cadets and for the younger ones there will be fairground attractions and a bouncy castle/slide.

Entertainment during the afternoon will be provided by Peterhead & District Pipe Band as well as two local dance groups. The Dolphin Café will be open for fish and chips and the Lifeboat Fundraising Group will be selling tea, coffee and delicious home bakes.

And for those who enjoy a kipper there will be a kipper barbecue too.

Lifeboat 2nd coxswain, James Geary, said: “Last year’s fun day was a great success and we would like again to invite the people of Peterhead and district to come along and take part in our fun day.”

The event takes place in the area next to the lifeboat station at Peterhead Harbour West Pier.
