Fleetwood Lifeboat Day 2017


One event in the year that I always look forward to attending is the Lifeboat Day at Fleetwood.

Sadly last year I was unable to attend due to other commitments that were on the same day, this also meant that I would be missing the first showing of the new Fleetwood Lifeboat the Kenneth James Pierpoint.

The Kenneth James Pierpoint replaced the William Street which arrived in Fleetwood in 1989 and was retired in August 2016 after 27 years of service.

So with all that said I was very happy that I could make it to the 2017 event and I was excited to get some photos of the New Fleetwood Vessel.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to all the Men and Women who are involved with the RNLI, the job they do to save lives whilst putting their own at risk is a selfless act and one that should be applauded at every opportunity.
