Come to one of our popular open evenings on Wednesday nights throughout the school summer holidays. We're open from 6.30pm to around 9.30pm and the evening usually includes a talk and a chance to step on-board the all-weather lifeboat to look at her equipment. Children also get the chance to climb into the inshore lifeboat and dress up in crew kit.
