A lifeboat has been blessed ahead of a lifeboat day taking place this weekend.

Newbiggin Lifeboat Day will take place on Sunday, July 27, where there will be displays and demonstrations undertaken by the crew.

And ahead of the weekend’s celebrations, the lifeboat service was blessed with a service undertaken by Newbiggin lifeboat chaplain Rev Peter Sinclair.

The lifeboat day gets under way on Sunday at 1.30pm with a variety of stalls and attractions in and around the lifeboat station.

A Sea King helicopter from RAF Boulmer is scheduled to visit Newbiggin Bay during the afternoon, and the boathouse will be open on Sunday where visitors can enjoy homemade cakes and scones.
