Happisburgh lifeboat station volunteers, past and present, gathered at the Cart Gap Station on Sunday to celebrate the 100 years of continuous service in saving lives at sea.
More than 100 people gathered to enjoy a hog roast and drinks, and to look at photos, history boards of the station and re-lived stories from the past as well as seeing how things have changed at the RNLI station over the years.
The evening ended with the presentation of a Vellum, to mark the occasion. It was handed over by Malcolm Vincent, a member of the RNLI Council, to Cedric Cox lifeboat operations manager who has been with Happisburgh RNLI for the past 47 years.
Earlier in the day the station was open for the public to visit and view the history as well as chat to the current crews.
The station lifeboat day and fete will be held on Sunday August 3, from noon to 4pm at Cart Gap.
