Happisburgh's lifeboat crew had a grand time of it on Sunday when they accepted a £1,000 cheque for the RNLI.

The money was presented by Ian Ritchie, captain of Mundesley Golf Club, who had chosen the charity to receive the proceeds of community golf events held throughout the year.

Mr Ritchie joined the crew on board the station's Atlantic 75 Douglas Paley vessel after it returned to station from its Sunday morning exercise and was given a tour of the boat.
