Members of Tenby RNLI will welcome the public along to a rescheduled ‘open day’ at the resort’s lifeboat station this month.
The 'open day' was orginally due to take place last month, but was cancelled due to operational issues with the Haydn Miller lifeboat. It will now take place over the Bank Holiday weekend on Sunday, August 27.
Visitors will be able to tour the station and chat to members of the crew, and there will also be the rare opportunity to take tours around the boat and see all of the kit and technology the crew use out on rescues, making the Tamar lifeboat amongst the most advanced in the RNLI fleet.
At 5 pm the Tamar lifeboat will be launched down the slipway and perform a short display before giving visitors a chance to see the boat being recovered either from the viewing gallery inside the station, or from the vantage point up on Castle Hill.
The lifeboat station’s souvenir shop will also be open, selling a range of RNLI goodies, and the popular ‘History of Tenby Lifeboats’ book.
The ‘open day’ will take place from 11 am.
