LIFEBOAT CREW REACH NEW HEIGHTS AGAIN!

23/04/2004

[This was cancelled at the last minute for operational reasons, and has been rescheduled for Saturday 21st May!]

Kinghorn's Myre Park will play host to an unusual visitor tomorrow (24/4/2004) morning when a Sea King helicpter from RAF Boulmer in Northumberland drops in.

The chopper will arrive around 11.30 am, shortly before helping recent recruits to the RNLI Kinghorn Lifeboat see their training reach new heights off the Fife shoreline at lunchtime.

The new crew members will be among those raised and lowered from the helicopter helicopter during a regular visit to exercise rescue techniques.

Footnote: The Anstruther and Queensferry lifeboats will also be in attendance, making this an invaluable training session for all concerned!0
