The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



The Competition run by the RNLI lifeboat Fundraising Committee at Kinghorn, to name the crew's new training dummy has been won by Hazel Hyslop from Dalgety Bay, who came up with the name 'KLIFF', which stands for Kinghorn Lifeboat Imitation Floating Friend. Hazel now wins a family ticket to the infamous Spooky Walk.

The local lifeboat crew volunteers have decided to hold more spooky walks this Halloween, after the enjoyment shared by all in last 2 years' walks. Organiser and crew member, Keith Hay said, " The crew have decided to continue the Spooky walks this year, but to change the areas and stories which will be visited. So even if you were lucky enough to take part in last years walks, then this year will be totally different..with new scares awaiting the unsuspecting."

"Carrying a clean change of underwear is recommended," he joked, adding " due to the nature of these types of walks we would advise that it is suitable for children aged 12 and over, but younger children should be accompanied by an adult who is aware that there is a fear factor built into them."

The walks will be held on Thursday 26th - Saturday 28th October from 7pm each evening, with a walk starting every 20 minutes thereafter. The cost will remain at £3 per adult and £2 for Children/Concessions. It would be wise to book in advance by telephoning 07794652874, although you can also turn up on the night ..but places were at a premium last year.

There will also be entertainment, Face painting, Lucky dips, Tea/Coffee etc within the lifeboat Station, with free lollypops to anyone in fancy dress. All monies raised will go directly into the RNLI funds for the lifeboats.
