Thank you to all those supporting us today and we hope to see you all again over the weekend with your friends and family too.

#Torbay Inshore #Lifeboat has been tasked twice in the last twenty four hours. Details are on the web site www.torbaylifeboat.co.uk for you. Tomorrow Friday 12 August is a big day for this important Lifeboat - her official naming will take place at 5 pm in front of an invited audience. Everyone can of course come and witness the occasion - we hope to be joined by eight or nine classic lifeboats for this event. If you are not in the area we hope the 'Brix HD Cam' accessed from the web site will show some of the event. At 7 pm we will hold our annual service of dedication this year in front of the Lifeboat Station and this will be followed at dusk with the atmospheric 'Light up the Breakwater'. The candle lights this year display varying colours so can we get a continuous light show from end to end!

#Torbay #Lifeboat Week is up and running and the weather forecasts look great for the weekend of events ahead. If you have been waiting to see what the forecast is before buying your tickets for the 'Bands in the Park' event wait no longer! We have had a number of inquiries about the Classic Lifeboats - the latest is that they plan to be with us for the naming ceremony on Friday afternoon - they expect to gather off the Dart entrance and come along the coast to Brixham - quite a sight - eight or nine are now expected. Also on Friday evening following the Annual Service of Dedication we will be aiming to light up Brixham Breakwater with candle light - that needs you to carry a lantern (we have some different ones this year) so please raise a group and lets have a good crowd from end to end! Details of all the plans are on the website www.torbaylifeboat.co.uk for you.
