Sheringham lifeboat day fun

Sheringham lifeboat crew member Paul Harding let someone else do the rescuing for a change, when he volunteered to be pulled around the town's Leas boating lake by a radio controlled vessel brought along by Norwich Model Boat Club as part of the town's annual lifeboat day.

Visitors had a chance to take part in a Generation Game-style 'Get Your Kit On' challenge, with youngsters and adults invited to don full lifeboat crew kit as quickly as possible.

Other attractions at Sunday's event at Sheringham lifeboat station included an abseil demonstration by coastguards, and a demonstration by Sheringham lifeguards.

Also on show was an electric guitar donated by former Faithless frontman Maxi Jazz and a drum skin signed by heavy rockers Metallica, both of which will be auctioned off during the August bank holiday weekend in aid of Sheringham lifeboat.

Sealed bids for the guitar and drum skin can be handed in at Sheringham lifeboat station, the RNLI shop in High Street, or by post to Brian Farrow, 16 South Street, Sheringham, NR26 8LL.
