Kilcobben Cove at The Lizard was the setting for another successful lifeboat day hosted by the crew, shore crew and fundraisers from The Lizard Lifeboat station.

Visitors were wowed by the station’s lifeboat Rose, with guided tours of the Tamar class lifeboat taking place throughout the day. To the delight of the crowds of people who had lined the cliff paths and filled the lifeboat station, Rose also launched twice during the afternoon.

Lifeboat souvenirs could be bought, alongside refreshments including a barbecue and cakes.

Mullion Coastguard Rescue Team and a crew from Mullion Fire Station were also there along with RNLI Lifeguards, the RNLI face to face fundraising team and The Lizard Lifeboat community safety officers.

Families could even take part in an ICE Engineering workshop, which both children and adults found entertaining.

Lifeboat press officer Lyndsay Bray said: “Organisers wish to thank Peter Greenslade, Phil Greet and Johnny Richards for providing the PA and sound system, and their guests for the day.

“A special thank you to Tesco Helston for donating the bread rolls and to Roskilly’s of St Keverne for the fabulous and generous donation of their delicious ice cream.
