The Embankment, Peterborough
The Peterborough CAMRA beer festival has over the years been a stalwart and remarkable fund-raiser for the RNLI, having funded several inshore lifeboats. In 2014, the festival made a significant contribution towards the cost of Wells' new Shannon lifeboat and in 2015, the festival organisers will again be supporting the Wells Shannon Lifeboat Appeal.
St Nicholas Church, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
A well-known name during the 70s and 80s from BBC Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night' and 'Listen to the Band', the Lewisham Concert Band is still one of the most highly-regarded wind bands in the south east, with a mix of professional and amateur musicians under the leadership of musical director Leslie Lake.
A 40-strong contingent from the band will be treating us to a performance in Wells church on 12 September.
Tickets £10 each available from Wells tourist information centre.
This event has been kindly sponsored by Hopkins homes and Sheringham Shoal Wind Farm.
Be well prepared for Christmas with the guild's annual fair with festive-themed stalls, cakes, souvenirs, refreshments and a raffle.
This event is usually at the Maltings on Staithe Street but may be relocated to the Congregational Hall due to building work. We'll update with further details when we have them.
As usual, we're holding open evenings at the boathouse on Wednesday nights throughout the school summer holidays from 6.30pm to around 9pm. There'a chance to learn a bit about the station's history and how we operate and to meet the crew and to step aboard the all-weather lifeboard. Children usually also get a chance to try on some of our kit and to get a close up look at our inshore lifeboat.
We're holding our popular Charity Golf Day at Weston Park again this year on 27 August, with funds being raised towards the new Shannon class Lifeboat for Wells. Team entries are invited and we'd also like to hear from anyone who wants to sponsor a hole or donate a raffle prize... for more information or to download a poster or entry form, see our event listing.
