Lifeboat Day at Fleetwood. One of the inshore boats in action.

The town’s Shannon class lifeboat will take to the waves alongside the Kenneth James Pierpoint and the D-class inshore lifeboat, Mary Elizabeth Barnes, at 10am on Saturday at the Fleetwood Lifeboat Station.

The yachts from Fleetwood Marina will then sail past, with a prize being awarded to the ‘best dressed’ boat.

The lifeboats will then give speed and agility demonstrations.

Stalls selling homemade cakes and crafts, face painting, and a tombola and raffle will be open to the public at the station, on Fleetwood Esplanade.

There will also be a special appearance from lifeboats from the neighbouring stations of Blackpool, Lytham, St Annes, Morecambe and Barrow-in-Furness.
