The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea

Station Prepares For Open Day

17/07/2003

Kinghorn Lifeboat Station holds its annual open day on Saturday 26th July from 12:30 to 16:00.

This is a good day out for the family and will include visits from other emergency services - police, fire, coastguard - model boats on show, many prize winning stalls, a raft race, a rescue demonstration and of course tours of the lifeboat and station.

You can learn about what goes on behind the scenes of the station, how we're funded AND help to raise money at the same time. The children can also meet Stormy Stan - the lifeboat mascot!

The Royal Navy Rescue helicopter from HMS Gannet - which is featured in the hit TV series Rockface - is due to arrive at 13:30 for a live rescue demonstration with the lifeboat. The raft race starts at 14:00 and all teams are welcome (more details on the website)!

We had a very successful open day last year and hope to make this one as good if not better! We look forward to seeing you there!
