As the good summer weather arrives the Arran RNLI will once again be opening their station doors to the public during their annual open day.

On Saturday July 20 the volunteer crew at Arran RNLI will welcome members of the public to their station in Lamlash for a chance to meet the crew and find out how the RNLI carries out their lifesaving work.

Visitors will have the chance to see the inshore lifeboat Rachel Hedderwick, witness a display demonstrating the abilities of the Atlantic 85, join the crew for a barbeque and have the chance to hear about the work of the RNLI and what it means to be part of the station.

The volunteers promise a great day out for the whole family and encourage everyone to take the opportunity to pay the station a visit for a rare behind the scenes look at how an RNLI station works.

The event on Saturday July 20 will take place from 12noon until 5pm at the Lamlash Pier.

A number of equipment demonstrations will take place throughout the day and activities, and food, will be available for visitors.

Visitors at last year’s open day line the Lamlash pier to enjoy a demonstration of the Arran lifeboat. 01_B28RNLI01
