Visitors to Trevaunance Cove will see action both in the skies and in the sea on Monday, August 4 as St Agnes RNLI Lifeboat hold their annual Lifeboat Day.
All funds raised will go towards the recently launched new lifeboat appeal for St Agnes. The current D class, the Blue Peter IV, is approaching the end of her operational life so a new lifeboat is needed to replace her.
Blue Peter IV and her crew will perform their rescue skills in a number of different scenarios, such as kayaks in trouble and a capsized craft.
There will be plenty to keep visitors amused on the beach too with a sandcastle competition, face painting, a children's beach quiz, tombola, sweepstake and a tug o’ war asking, can you beat the lifeboat crew?.
There will also be a barbecue, cream tea and refreshments.
There will be a Park and Ride facility operating from 10am - 6pm, the car park will be fully signposted as you enter the village.
The station has a target of £20,000 to raise before the new lifeboat arrives in autumn 2015.
